Race stopped after Kimi Raikkonen shunt

Published on 13 Nov 2016 17:51

The Brazilian Grand Prix has been suspended after 21 laps after a heavy crash for Kimi Raikkonen.

The Finn aquaplaned on the start/finish straight, spinning into the wall.

Nico Hulkenberg collected the smashed front wing of the Ferrari, with a piece being lodged into the front wing of his own car.

The incident came seconds after the race resumed after a safety car for a similar incident involving Marcus Ericsson who lost control as he headed onto the start/finish straight.

He came to a rest at the entrance of the pit lane, forcing Max Verstappen to take evasive action as he entered the pits.
