Huge crash for Raikkonen red flags British GP after opening lap



2014 Silverstone F1 Race: Raikkonen ran wide onto the run-off out of the Loop, lost control on the grass as he tried to rejoin and slammed into the barriers under the bridge.

The red flag has been brought out as the marshals help Kimi Raikkonen, who is limping, into the medical car. That was a huge impact. Replays also show that Felipe Massa pitched his car into a spin to avoid a head-on accident with Raikkonen. That could have been a huge impact.


Williams have decided they could not fix Felipe Massa’s car and have decided to push it back into the garage. A disconsolate Massa follows them back into the garage.

“Article 41.3 of F1’s Sporting Regulations states: ‘In all cases the order will be taken at the last point at which it was possible to determine the position of all cars. All such cars will then be permitted to resume the race.’

“That is normally taken at the start of the lap when the red flag came out.”

TEAM RADIO: Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg: “The race will be re-started behind the safety car, that’s our information so far.”… more to follow
