Mark Webber has escaped serious injury following a frightening late-race accident in Sunday’s FIA WEC season-ending Six Hours of Sao Paulo.

The ex-F1 star lost control of his No. 20 Porsche 919 Hybrid entering the high-speed final section of the Interlagos circuit with just 28 minutes remaining in the race.

Webber climbed from the car and was declared by Porsche to be OK but has been transported to a local hospital for precautionary checks.

Matteo Cressoni, the driver of the No. 90 8Star Motorsports Ferrari F458 Italia, who was collected in the incident, was evaluated and released from the circuit’s medical center.

Webber’s sister No. 14 Porsche of Neel Jani, Romain Dumas and Marc Lieb went onto claim victory in the race, marking Porsche’s first overall victory in a major long-distance sports car race since 1989.
