Audi is continuing its test at Sebring International Raceway this week, despite a serious accident late on Monday that hospitalized Timo Bernhard.
The German manufacturer, which started its traditional test the week after the Sebring 12 Hours with four cars, concluded that the technical problem that put Bernhard backward into the barriers at Turn 17 would not re-occur on the other cars and resumed running on Tuesday.
Bernhard climbed from the wreck of the R18 unaided but was taken to a nearby hospital where he spent the night under observation to be sure there were no lasting ill-effects from the crash.
Audi began the four-day test with two R18 e-tron quattro hybrids, one conventional turbodiesel R18 and the No. 3 R18 TDI that took part in the race at Sebring on Saturday. Eleven of the the 12 drivers who will race for the German manufacturer at the Le Mans 24 Hours in June are present.
