The Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson amazingly walked away from the huge high-speed crash that saw he couple of barrel rolls into the ArmCo barrier on the outside of the turn 1, where cars hits brake from speeds of over 300km+ to just 100km+ in the blink of an eye.

The session immediately red flagged and the Swedish speedy climbed out of the cockpit as the medical team arrived to assist him, before being taken to the medical centre for further checks.

“I don’t know what happened,” Ericsson said over the radio. “I am OK.”

Ericsson reappeared to the Sauber F1 garage after medical check-up and giving the thumbs up, but he was clearly limping and rubbing his neck.

Ericsson’s unbelievable crash came just five days after his team-mate Charles Leclerc emerged unscathed from a terrifying first-corner accident in Belgium.

Leclerc, 20, paid tribute to the ‘halo’, Formula One’s new safety device, after it deflected Fernando Alonso’s airborne McLaren away from his head.

Ericsson’s crash happened in the opening moments of Friday’s second practice session which was subsequently delayed for 20 minutes.
