Lando Norris has enormous accident in Spa qualifying
Lando Norris has crashed out of qualifying after an enormous impact at the top of Raidillon.
The McLaren driver had been running close to the top of the timesheets throughout qualifying, but an extra rain shower prior to the start of Q3 forced the drivers back onto wet tyres.
Norris lost grip heading up Eau Rouge and was sent careering into the wall at the high-speed kink of Raidillon, which caused a huge crash.
The Briton has since managed to get out of his car, the session was also red-flagged as a result – but Sebastian Vettel was particularly animated as he felt the red flag was brought out too slowly.
The Aston Martin driver furiously said over team radio: “What the f*** did I say? What did I say? Red track, unnecessary. Is he okay?”
Vettel pulled up alongside Norris while he was still in his car to ensure he was okay, and the McLaren driver responded with a thumbs-up in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
