After clinching pole position for the last race of the season, Mark had a very heavy accident in Sunday’s six-hour race in Sao Paulo. With less than half an hour to go Mark, who shares the Le Mans Prototype with Timo Bernhard (Germany) and Brendon Hartley (New Zealand), crashed heavily into the barriers at the fast last turn of the lap.

Mark was taken to the medical centre and has later been transferred to a hospital in São Paul. He is in a satisfactory condition and will stay overnight for further checks.

It was a bitter sweet day for Porsche as the team also achieved its biggest success of its debut season, clinching their maiden win with the Porsche 919 Hybrid in the final race of the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship in Brazil with the driving trio of Romain Dumas (France), Marc Lieb (Germany) and Neel Jani (Switzerland), who finished the race behind the safety car at the wheel of the winning car.
