The driver was reportedly trapped in the cabin and emergency services attended the scene quickly to remove him before he was taken to hospital for checks.

 It is currently not known what caused the crash or what the truck was carrying for the team.

This comes immediately after the team suffered an awful German Grand Prix, with both drivers Nico Hulkenberg – second at the time – and Daniel Ricciardo crashing out.

They were two of six drivers who retired during the incident-packed race while Pierre Gasley did not finish, with championship leader Lewis Hamilton crashing multiple times and finishing the race 11th.
