Red Bull change pit-stop procedures after injury incident at Germany GP

LONDON (Reuters) - Formula One champions Red Bull have changed their split-second pit-stop procedures, after a rear wheel flew off Mark Webber's car in the pitlane in Germany last weekend and injured a television cameraman.

A investigation carried out by the team in the wake of the Nuerburgring incident found that Webber's car was released prematurely because a "go" signal was sent accidentally by the right rear wheel man.

British cameraman Paul Allen, working for Formula One Management, suffered a broken collarbone and fractured ribs after being hit in the back by the bouncing 10kg wheel.

The incident has led to a clampdown on access to the pit lane during the race weekend.
