The Finn sustained an impact of 47G in the crash – 47 times the force of gravity – when he lost control of his car as he rejoined the track after running wide on the first lap.

“Kimi is OK. There is no major issue,” said team boss Marco Mattiacci.

“We checked several times and we will take a decision about the test and what to do.”
