The FIA have released a statement after a huge crash at the start of the Formula 2 feature race, a feeder series that is racing alongside Formula One ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. As the lights went out, 18-year-old Theo Pourchaire stalled on the grid, and was collected by Enzo Fittipaldi, grandson of the two-time F1 champion Emerson, who hit into the back of the Sauber Academy driver.

A statement read: “The FIA advises that incident occurred during the FIA Formula 2 Feature Race start today, 05/12/21, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, involving car #10, Théo Pourchaire, and car #14, Enzo Fittipaldi.

“The drivers were immediately attended to by emergency and medical crews. The drivers were conscious and extricated by the attending medical crews. Both have been transferred by ambulance and helicopter to King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah.”
