Ericsson sent to hospital for check-up after Silverstone practice crash

Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson has been transported to hospital for a routine check-up following a sizeable crash during the final practice session for the British Grand Prix on Saturday morning.

Ericsson ran wide at Stowe during a hot lap in FP3, causing him to spin across the track and into the wall near pit entry.

The impact left his Sauber C35 with significant damage, but Ericsson was able to get out of the car and walk away from the shunt.

Sauber has now confirmed on Twitter that Ericsson has been transported to a local hospital for a check-up.

Even if Ericsson returns from hospital in time for qualifying, it seems unlikely that he will be able to take part due to the damage sustained by his car in the shunt.
