The Belgian Grand Prix has been red flagged following a frightening crash for Kevin Magnussen that caused significant damage to the barrier at Raidillion.

Magnussen went off at one of the fastest points of the circuit, losing the back-end of his Renault after running through Eau Rouge and Raidillion corners coming uphill.

The crash was so severe that the headrest in Magnussen’s car came loose, leaving his R.S.16 wrecked. Thankfully, the Dane was able to walk away, albeit with a limp.

Three laps after the crash, stewards decided to red flag the race as repairs needed to be completed to the guardrail, forcing all drivers to head to the pit lane.

Once the repairs were completed, stewards gave the call for the race to resume with a 10-minute warning, leaving Rosberg to lead away the pack once again.
