Red Bull Racing Truck Involved in Road Crash near Melbourne

Red Bull Racing did not get off to a very good start in their preparation for the upcoming Australian Grand Prix. According to local radio station 3AW, a truck carrying equipment of the Milton Keynes based team has been involved in an accident on a road near Melbourne.

The Albert Park circuit near Melbourne will host the 2010 Australian Grand Prix two weekends from now. While the majority of the Red Bull equipment will be transported to Australian next week, the first containers seem to have reached the Aussie land a bit sooner. However, while about 20 minutes before reaching Australia's capital, the truck was involved in a road crash on Princes Freeway.

The incident was reported by a witness, who told the aforementioned source that the truck featured Red Bull Racing logos. The Austrian team is yet to report the incident.

The Age picked up the story also and quoted a police spokesman as saying that the incident was nothing major, as it resulted in some minor debris. Additionally, it seems a 32-year old person was a victim in the accident, but the ambulance treated him at the scene.

We're not sure what the truck was carrying, but according to the same publication, both the Red Bull RB6 cars were due to make the Albert Park pit lane on Friday.

The Australian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place between March 26-28 and will count as the 2nd round of the 2010 schedule. The very weekend after that, F1 will travel to Sepang, Malaysia for the penultimate round of the pre-European F1 tour this year.
