George Russell and Zhou Guanyu were involved in a huge crash on the opening lap of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
The pair started eighth and ninth on the grid, and their two cars collided as they tried to go around the first corner, which caused them to go flying off the track.
Russell was able to leave his car quickly and appeared unharmed, but Zhou’s car rolled over, leading to the Brit rushing over to help him.
Medics were also on hand to provide assistance, as they tried to get Zhou out of his car.
Sky Sports have since reported that Zhou was able to get out safely, and his team, Alfa Romeo, have confirmed that the Chinese driver is OK.
