Zhou Guanyu’s car ROLLS OVER in horrific British GP crash, skids upside down for 200 metres and slams into barriers | The Sun
July 4, 2022
ALFA ROMEO driver Zhou Guanyu was involved in a horror crash on the first corner at the British Grand Prix when his car FLIPPED and slammed upside down into the crash barriers.
The 23-year-old collided with Mercedes ace George Russell at Silverstone with the Chinese star's car flipping upside down.
His Alfa Romeo ended up in the gravel, where his car then flipped over again before smashing into the fence after skidding for 200 metres.
Russell instantly jumped out of his car to check up on his rival, which ultimately saw him disqualified after leaving his vehicle.
A red flag was immediately called, with Alex Albon also involved in the incident to leave him out of the race after colliding with Sebastian Vettel.
Meanwhile Yuki Tsunoda's AlphaTauri suffered heavy damage after being hit by Albon after the ex-Red Bull ace had spun into the wall.
