After Carlos Sainz had an accident during FP2 at Monza, the FIA is now investigating how the accident happened.

Why it matters: The Spaniard complained of some pain after being thrown forward towards the steering wheel due to the crash.


  • Sainz skidded in the Ascari corner and crashed into the barrier. His Ferrari car was a hard piece of work for the mechanics to repair afterwards.
  • Ferrari had previously conducted its own investigation into the accident using onboard cameras.

What he had to say:

So we will look the belt stretch, as we do with any major incident, or significant incident like that, and see what we can learn from it. You know, can it be improved? Let’s have a look?
