Fan video of Zhou Guanyu crash at British Grand Prix goes viral
An extremely scary crash to start the British Grand Prix on Sunday at Silverstone Circuit in England had fans and drivers concerned, but things turned out to be OK.
Chinese driver Zhou Guanyu was flipped upside-down and slid across the gravel into a fence just after the F1 race got started. Pierre Gasly clipped George Russell, who then bumped Zhou and caused the Alfa Romeo to flip.
The race was immediately red flagged, and Russell exited his car to run over and check on Zhou. Zhou was taken to the medical center for observation.
“Zhou is conscious, he is talking, there are no fractures. Considering the circumstances, he is pretty good, pretty well.”
