Enzo Fittipaldi flown to hospital after F2 crash in Saudi Arabia – .


Enzo Fittipaldi was airlifted to hospital after a horrific F2 crash in Saudi Arabia.
Formula 1 legend Emerson Fittipaldi’s grandson is “conscious” and now in King Fahad’s Armed Forces Hospital in Jeddah.

Fittipaldi even made a gesture with his arms while being hoisted from the track, according to reports from SkySports in Germany.

The sickening collision, just seconds after the start of the race, occurred with Théo Pourchaire’s car, which had stalled on the starting line after starting the race in third position.

Fittipaldi, up from 18th place on the grid, didn’t see the danger ahead and drove in the back of the distressed ART car, leaving onlookers gasping in horror.

Fittipaldi was thrown into the barriers as debris from his car was sent around the perimeter of the track as his car finally came to a stop.

An F2 statement read: “Pourchaire and Fittipaldi were immediately taken care of by emergency and medical teams.

“The drivers were conscious and extricated by the medical teams present and were transferred to the King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital in Jeddah. “

A red flag was waved immediately after the crash, but the race resumed within half an hour.

But the track, described as “very dangerous” by Red Bull driver Sergio Perez, suffered another incident at turn 3, which necessitated a second red flag, which ended the race.

The previous two F2 races at the Jeddah Corniche circuit came to a halt when incidents in the first lap forced a safety car.

Oscar Piastri would end up winning the main race, with half the points awarded to the peloton.
