THE COLCIAGO-JOURDAIN CRASH

The test session was red-flagged in the closing moments when the SEAT León cars of Roberto Colciago and Michel Jourdain crashed into each other.Both cars skidded on the grass at turn seven; Colciago's hit the armco barrier first and was then t-boned by Jourdain's.

As the Italian driver was trapped inside his damaged car, the medical services performed extrication; Colciago was transported to the track's medical centre for examination and then to Curitiba's hospital for X-rays, because he complained of rib pain.

Although the first examinations did not reveal any cause for concern, he will be staying at the hospital for most of the night under observation.

Both teams, SEAT Sport and SEAT Sport Italia will be working overnight to try to repair the damaged cars.

Michel Jourdain said about the accident: "Colciago was behind me and I told him to pass on the left, which he began to do until he swerved right to take the line. I had nowhere to go and we collided."
