Stobart VK M-Sport Ford rally driver Gigi Galli got a surprise on Sunday evening after the finish of ADAC Rallye Deutschland when a selection of his WRC colleagues visited him in hospital.

Galli had a high-speed accident on day 1 of the event and required hospital treatment to pin a fractured left femur.

After finishing the rally, the other Ford crews planned to visit Galli but in order to cheer the Italian up they all dressed in their fire proof underwear. After some strange looks in the Trier hospital, the crews, joined by the Citroen pair of Dani Sordo and Marc Marti, invaded Galli's room and shared stories from the weekend's action.

Galli is recovering well after his Friday evening operation and is expected to leave hospital and return home on Wednesday.

Stobart VK M-Sport Ford Team Driver Gigi Galli said:

"It was great to see all my team mates in the hospital and what a surprise to see them all walk into the room in their underwear. We have a great team spirit between all of the Ford crews and it really is just like a big family. The doctors tell me the operation went very well so hopefully I will recover soon and get back to action for all of my fans."
