BUDAPEST, Hungary - Mercedes motorsport head Toto Wolff will still attend this weekend's 2014 Hungarian Formula 1 GP despite breaking a number of bones in a cycling crash while riding with team engineers in Vienna, Austria.

A team spokesman said the Austrian broke a wrist, elbow, shoulder and collarbone in the fall on a cycle path alongside the River Danube and was treated in hospital but was expected to be at the circuit on Friday for first practice.

LOWE NOT HURT

Paddy Lowe, who runs F1's current dominant team with Wolff, was cycling in the group and also fell but escaped with a few grazes.

Mercedes has won nine of the 10 races so far in 2014 and is favourite to add to the tally at the Hungaroring, a track on which Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has triumphed for the past two years and four times in total.

The team is first and second on the Drivers' championship with German Nico Rosberg 14 points ahead of Hamilton.
