F1 Twitter prays for Guanyu Zhou’s safety as he slides with the car upside down after colliding with George Russell on the very first lap.

The start of the British Grand Prix was as intense as it could get. But fortunately, it didn’t turn into a tragedy as Guanyu Zhou survives a major crash.

On the very first lap, there was a collision between George Russell and Zhou. While the Briton spun, his Alfa Romeo counterpart’s car slid onto the gravel upside down and smashed the fence after crossing the barrier.

Russell worried about Zhou’s health rushed toward him to help. The race was immediately stopped with red flags, but it was just the start of uncertainty.

Zhou for a long time was stuck in the car, as it was upside down. On the other hand, there were no updates on his health for the next few minutes.

It was apparent that Zhou irrespective of his condition would be taken to the hospital for the necessary checks. The commentators soon update that Zhou is out of the car and was on the stretcher.

The better news was that Zhou was conscious and was moving. Thus, it was safe to assume that the Chinese race driver was fine and avoided injuries.
