The FIA will examine Carlos Sainz’s seatbelt after the Ferrari driver was thrown forward as he hit the barrier in FP2 at the Monza circuit.
Sainz suffered his third crash in four race weekends when, in second practice at the Italian Grand Prix, he lost control of his Ferrari through the middle part of the Ascari chicane.
Hitting the tyre barrier nose first, Sainz was thrown forward in the impact.
The Spaniard was left groaning, saying that one “hurt” before climbing out of his car and being taken to the track’s medical centre.
He was given the all-clear and was back out on track a few hours later for sprint qualifying.
