The team face a huge job repairing the car today and Lance is still sore following such a high impact. Lance's focus now shifts to fully recovering ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix.
Mike Krack, Team Principal, AMF1 Team, said: "The whole team are relieved that Lance was able to step out of the car after yesterday's accident – however, he is still feeling the after-effects of such a high-impact crash. Our priority now is that he makes a full and speedy recovery. Together, we have decided that he will sit out this evening's race and instead focus fully on returning to the cockpit for next weekend's Japanese Grand Prix."
