Mercedes Motorsport boss Toto Wolff has been injured in a cycling accident ahead of this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.

Members of the Mercedes Formula 1 team were cycling in a team-building exercise in Vienna when the accident occurred.

Wolff suffered a fractured shoulder, collarbone, elbow and wrist and has since been released from hospital.

"We've decided to leave it to the pros now," Wolff joked on Mercedes's official Twitter account.

"Lewis [Hamilton] & Nico [Rosberg] are better wheel to wheel at 300 km/h than we are at 30 km/h!"
