Toto Wolff with arm in cast during Hungarian GP weekend

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff began his summer break in hospital, according to Bild am Sonntag.

During a pre-Hungary team building exercise, Wolff broke his arm in several places in a high speed road cycling pileup.

Wolff, 42, had surgery to repair the damage but nonetheless made it to the paddock for the Hungarian Grand Prix. But just days after the race at the Hungaroring, Wolff was due to travel to London for a meeting with fellow team chiefs.

The meeting was reportedly cancelled because the Austrian fell ill. In fact, he was in hospital.

“After the race in Budapest I suddenly had a fever and had to return to the clinic,” Wolff confirmed.

The newspaper said the doctors ordered that his mobile phone be switched off for at least 48 hours, “I just had to rest as the injuries were easily inflamed.”
