On twitter that a loud bang was heard at RBR with someone possibly injured.

Status: Unconfirmed

No link just tweets from various people I follow:

Only journalist I know talking about it is:

Kate Walker ‏@F1Kate

RBR mechanics running through paddock in search if a doctor. No idea why. Hope they're all okay.

Hungarian track staff don't know where the medical centre is. #worrying

No news on what's up at Red Bull - will keep you posted. Hoping it was a minor packing-related injury.


Important to add, that she didn't mention the bang, its coming from other tweets.

Still unconfirmed.

I thought I heard a bang when Ted Kravitz was doing his post-race babbling on Sky, at the time I thought it was just a glitch in the audio, but perhaps not after all?

I've heard that bang, weird there's no confirmation what it was at this point.

That is worrying. I hope it is nothing serious.

There have been bangs in the paddock all weekend from the Thursday pit walk through pre-race stuff today. Sounds like distant tank fire. No idea what it really is.

During 'The notebook' on Sky sports I saw a few people running through the paddock.

It was a minor incident with a truck driver, all is fine now.

Could be, if they were close to the circuit. It was quite regular on Thursday but I can only recall hearing it twice today, both before the race. We did run away quickly at the end though...

there is a (dutch?) fan group every year who are placed on the top of the hill behind the grandstand, they always bring a cannon with dummy cartridges and fire it every hour or so. or something like that.
