The Formula 2 Feature Race in Saudi Arabia has been red flagged after a scary crash involving Theo Pourchaire and Enzo Fittipaldi.
Sauber junior driver Pourchaire had stalled on the grid for the third and final F2 race of the weekend in Saudi Arabia, having lined up P3.
Most of the pack launched past unscathed, but P18 starter Fittipaldi was unable to avoid the Frenchman, slamming into the back of his ART car.
The race would be red flagged as medical personal rushed onto the track to attend to both drivers.

Pourchaire was the first to exit his car, giving a thumbs up to the crowd as he was loaded into the ambulance, which was met with a huge cheer.
Sky Germany would provide an update on the status of Fittipaldi, reporting that he is “being transported to the helicopter, and then flying to a hospital. He gave a sign with his arms, so he is able to move them and is conscious.”
However, there is no word yet on any injuries he may have suffered.
The broadcaster added that from what they heard, “Enzo had difficulties in getting out of the car himself because he was stuck. He needed help. Now he is transported to the helicopter. But most importantly he is said to be conscious.”
The race would restart, cut to a time limit of 20 minutes plus one lap. Half points will be awarded and a pit stop is still mandatory.
