Ferrari’s Badoer has second big crash in two days

Ferrari’s Luca Badoer escaped serious injury after crashing heavily for the second day in a row in testing in southern Spain on Thursday. A Ferrari spokesman said the Italian test driver had been given the all-clear after checks at the Jerez circuit medical centre. «The car is damaged but the driver is okay, which is what is most important,» he said. «We are still investigating to see if there is any relationship with what happened yesterday. He had quite a crash on Wednesday.»

Badoer crashed at the same hairpin where he had previously wrecked his Ferrari F2005. Reports said Thursday’s accident was similar, with the car launched into the air before hitting the tyre wall. Ferrari continued testing with Spaniard Marc Gene.

Seven times world champion Michael Schumacher is due to end his holidays early and get back to work with Ferrari in Jerez next week and the spokesman said there were no plans for the German’s schedule to change.
