Italian GP halted as Charles Leclerc involved in crash

Charles Leclerc crashed out of the Italian Grand Prix at one of the fastest corners on the Formula One calendar.

The Ferrari driver was midway through the Parabolica here in Monza when he veered into the barriers at speeds approaching 180mph.

Leclerc was winded in the huge accident but managed to remove himself from the cockpit.

The race was red-flagged following the incident on lap 24. “Are you OK?” asked the Ferrari pit wall.

A breathless Leclerc responded: “Yes, it was a big crash.”
