Shortly after 4 p.m. on Sunday July 3, the Chinese driver of the Alfa Romeo team had been the victim of a very violent accident at the start of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix. Hit by the car of George Russel (Mercedes ) itself hit by Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri), Guanyu Zhou’s single-seater overturned, ending its race behind a wall of tires at the first corner. The driver was evacuated to the medical center in a reassuring condition. He does not have a fracture, his team said. Neither Guanyu Zhou nor Alex Albon also involved in the accident have “major injuries”, said the international federation. The race was immediately interrupted.
