Haas driver Kevin Magnussen was transported to the medical center after his No. 20 machine crashed at the Mexico City Grand Prix.
Magnussen hit the inside curb between turns 7 and 8 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez and spun.
His vehicle slid across the track and crashed hard into the guard rails – the rear wing of his car was in shreds.
Shortly after the accident, the car caught fire when Magnussen got into the medical car under his own power.
The race was stopped following the red flag incident with 35 of the 71 laps completed.
Magnussen retired for the second time that day after Red Bull driver Sergio Perez had an accident before the first corner of the race.
After a delay of just over 20 minutes, the barriers that Magnussen crashed into were repaired and the race began again with a standing start.
Max Verstappen was leading the race at the time of the accident, with Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton in second and third behind him.
According to Haas, Magnussen is doing well after a check-over, “but will only be held for a while for observation.”
