Australian GP boss admits track invasion could have had ‘horrific consequences’ after major security breakdown allowed fans to access the circuit while cars were still racing

The chief executive of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has admitted the track invasion at Albert Park on Sunday could have had ‘horrific consequences’ and promised a ‘thorough investigation’ into the event. ‘A large group of spectators managed to break the security lines and accessed the track while the race was still ongoing,’ the stewards’ report read. ‘All of this presented significant danger to the spectators; race officials and the drivers.’. He told ABC his team would look at CCTV footage to ascertain how spectators managed to get access to the track while the cars were still zooming past. ‘There’s a controlled allowance of people to come onto the track after the race has concluded and after the safety car passes,’ he said. Meanwhile, a spectator who was hit by a flying debris that came off Kevin Magnussen’s car when the Haas crashed claims he was left bleeding without any immediate help from race officials.
