Italian GP practice shortened after horrific Formula 3 crash
Track repairs were required after Australian driver Alex Peroni collided with the curb on the 20th lap, sending his car somersaulting into the air and landing upside-down on the safety barrier.
The 19-year-old Peroni, who drives for Campos Racing, was able to leave his car safely and walk to the medical car for an examination.
The race eventually finished under the safety car, with Russian championship leader Robert Shwartzman taking the win.
The so-called "sausage curb" that caused the crash was placed on the track to stop drivers from gaining an advantage by running wide round the corner.
