Aussie driver sent flying in 'scary' crash


//

An Australian driver has somehow survived a horror crash at the Italian Grand Prix that saw his car fly through the air in a scary moment at Monza.

Teenage F3 driver Alexander Peroni hit the sausage kerb causing his front wing to break, sending him sailing over the track and onto the safety barrier. He was coming sixth at the time of the potentially fatal crash.

A medical car was out on the track immediately on the 18th lap but thankfully Peroni was seen walking from the accident.

"He is in hospital doing well and recovering from concussion and a fracture to a vertebra," a statement on the Tasmanian driver's Facebok said.

"Team Peroni wish to thank all of those people that have expressed concern and a particular thank you to the many wonderful medical staff at the Monza circuit and at the Ospedale San Gerardo of Monza."

The nightmare crash comes after a series of shocking scenes in motorsport prompting calls for greater driver safety and track adjustments.

The death of 22-year-old French driver Anthoine Hubert at the Belgian Grand Prix last week rocked the entire racing community.

At Spa F2 driver Juan Manuel Correa was also placed in an induced coma after sustaining severe injuries in a crash on the same track.

Correa is in hospital with spinal injury and fractured legs and was put in the coma after acute respiratory failure.
