Having still not fully recovered from a fall earlier this season, team boss Peter Sauber is in the wars again.

This time, the 68-year-old copped a head injury when he arrived in the paddock for this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.

The majority-owner of his eponymous F1 team sliced the top of his head open on the boot-lid of the hire car he’d been given to use this weekend. He was left with a sizeable gash that required the treatment of the team’s high-profile physio, Josef Leberer.

Herr Sauber suffered a fall during the Australian Grand Prix weekend, leaving him with elbow and wrist injuries that have still not fully healed.

“[At this stage of the season], an operation would be too complicated,” Sauber admitted to the Blick newspaper.
