Formula 2 drivers Enzo Fittipaldi and Theo Pourchaire have both been taken to hospital after they were involved in a horror crash at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The FIA has confirmed both drivers were conscious when they were extricated from their cars before being given medical treatment.

French racer Pourchaire had failed to start his car properly as the lights went out for the F2 feature race, and so was left stationary as all those around him set off.

He was third on the grid, so when he stalled he was a sitting duck for most of the field coming up behind him.

Several drivers managed to get out of the way in time, but the unfortunate Fittipaldi was unable to avoid smashing into the back of Pourchaire’s car.

The race was immediately red-flagged and rescuers were on the scene within seconds to attend to the two drivers.
