F1: Zhou Guanyu taken to medical centre after massive first-lap crash at British Grand Prix

Zhou Guanyu and Alex Albon have been taken for assessment at the Formula One medical centre after a crash in the British Grand Prix.

An FIA statement confirmed both “Zhou and Albon have been taken to the medical centre. Both were conscious and will be evaluated”, following the enormous collision.

A massive coming together just seconds into the race at Silverstone involved at least five cars, with Zhou’s Alfa Romeo car flipping over.

Pierre Gasly’s car appeared to touch George Russell’s, who then spun and collided with Zhou – who then spun away, overturned and crashed through the barriers.

At the same time, another altercation caused by cars avoiding that first incident resulted in Albon careering into the wall, as others spun out or ricocheted off Russell.
