Kevin Magnussen has been transferred to hospital with an ankle injury after a hefty crash during Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix.

Magnussen lost the rear end of his Renault Formula 1 car at the top of the hill after Eau Rouge and Raidillion, slamming into the wall on the right-hand side of the circuit at high speed.

The crash was severe enough to cause Magnussen’s head-rest to break free, leaving much of the car wrecked.

Magnussen did manage to get out of his car unaided, but was limping when walking away from the shunt.

Renault confirmed that Magnussen had been taken to the medical centre with an injury to his left ankle, and has since been transferred to hospital for further check-ups.
