Gerhard Berger

Another F1 Driver Hospitalised by Ski Accident

Austrian Formula 1 driver Gerhard Berger, 54, suffered a broken hip and has been hospitalised after suffering an accident very similar to that of fellow ex-driver Michael Schumacher.

Berger had been travelling at speed in poor visibility conditions, he had hit the side of the piste too fast, and like Schumacher had been thrown though the air - landing badly.

Also like Schumacher Berger was regarded as an excellent skier, but fortunately for the Austrian his accident although it ended up in hospital did not end up with him in a life threatening coma.

Gerhard Berger competed in Formula One for 14 seasons, twice finishing 3rd overall in the championship. He won ten Grands Prix, achieved 48 podiums, 12 poles and 21 fastest laps.

With 210 starts he was among the most experienced Formula One drivers of all time. He previously owned 50 per cent of the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula One team until he sold his share back to energy drink owner Dietrich Mateschitz in November 2008.
