Formula 3 car FLIPS after slamming into tyre wall in high-speed collision during race at Spa in Belgium… with both drivers walking away unscathed

A huge two-car crash in the F3 sprint at Belgium’s Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps has seen the halo safety feature again called into action after a red flag was shown to bring the race to a halt. The Trident driver’s car momentarily went airborne as he clipped Goethe’s rear-left wheel before then hurtling into the reinforced tyre wall. As both drivers were sent cascading head-on into the barrier, Maloney’s car flipped onto it’s roof before eventually ending back upright. Maloney and Goethe remained stationary in their cars as a virtual safety car was immediately deployed to warn other drivers about the collision and slow down the vehicles still on track. The footage highlights the effectiveness of the halo safety system that was installed in 2018 to protect drivers from catastrophic collisions with Maloney protected from ending up with the weight of the car on his head and neck.
