Thrills and spills as teams entertain fans

The extra weekend off racing has given the Formula 1 teams the chance to show off their equipment to their fans with Sauber and Minardi both running exhibition events. Minardi's annual bash for the fans moved this year to Rockingham and on Saturday team boss Paul Stoddart was doing some laps for the fans when he pushed a little too hard and hit a concrete wall.

Down in Hinwil there was an exhibition for Sauber fans, showing off some of the older Sauber machinery. During this event a C5 sportscar spun and crashed and four fans suffered cuts and bruises.
