The FIA Formula 3 European Championship has seen some pretty hefty crashes in recent years but this horrific crash at the Red Bull Ring is surely the worst for a very, very long time.
After a small off for Ryan Tveter, dust and gravel blew onto the track causing Zhi Cong Li to launch over the back of Tveter’s car. Pedro Piquet also got caught up in the incident.
Li (the guy that got launched into the air) was diagnosed with broken heel bones and fractured vertebrae, a miracle considering the size of the impact.
We’re beyond relieved to see Peter Li giving the thumbs up from his hospital bed this morning. Get well soon Peter! pic.twitter.com/3mC5RuyCFr
