A bad weekend for Webster at Nurburgring as he completes just 12 laps of racing

Have your say

Josh Webster endured a difficult weekend at Germany’s Nurburgring circuit as he completed just 12 laps of racing from a possible 30 in the latest round of the GP3 Series.

The racer, from Mickfield, near Debenham, qualified 24th for the opening race on Saturday, but nearly rolled after being launched up on two wheels when he collided with teammate Jimmy Eriksson on the opening lap.

Webster said: “As I was passing Jimmy he clipped a kerb, hit me and it sent me into the air.

“As the car came down it broke the suspension.

“I went to the hospital as a precaution but everything’s fine.”

He was declared fit for race two on Sunday, which preceded the F1 race won by home favourite Sebastien Vettel.

Webster suffered a puncture on the 11th lap and decided to retire.
