Chinese Formula One driver Zhou Guanyu was involved in a serious crash at the British Grand Prix, flipping his vehicle towards a barrier near crowds on Sunday, July 3.
Video recorded by Scott Helme shows the moment Guanyu’s Alfa Romeo lost control and propelled over the tire barrier before violently crashing into a fence in front of spectators at Silverstone Circuit.
Guanyu posted a photo of himself on Twitter after the incident claiming his vehicle’s halo safety barrier saved him.
