Brands Euro F3: Lewis escapes serious injury but unlikely to race

Michael LEwis F3 Euro BRands Hatch 2013American Michael Lewis has escaped largely unscathed from his big crash in Formula 3 European Championship qualifying at Brands Hatch, although his Mucke Motorsport team believes it 'unlikely' that he will race.

Lewis was helicoptered to hospital in London from the circuit medical centre for precautionary scans to check for internal injuries after crashing at Paddock Hill Bend in second qualifying.

Doctors will decide on Friday evening whether he will be fit to race this weekend, although his Dallara-Mercedes sustained heavy damage.

He was conscious through the extrication procedure, and reportedly was willing to get himself out of the car before medics advised him otherwise.

Mucke technical chief Peter Fluckiger told AUTOSPORT: "He wants to race of course, but we think it's unlikely. He was just trying to get another tenth, trying really hard, and he said he went a bit too fast into the corner."
