Haas driver Kevin Magnussen has been transported to the medical center after his No. 20 machine crashed at the Mexico City Grand Prix.

Magnussen caught the inside curb in between turns 7 and 8 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez – causing him to spin out.

His vehicle slid across the track and collided with the barriers hard – with the rear wing of his car in tatters.

Shortly after the wreck, the car began to catch on fire as Magnussen walked under his own power into the medical car.

The race was red-flagged after the incident with 35 of the 71 laps completed. 

Magnussen became the second retirement of the day after Red Bull driver Sergio Perez wrecked before the first corner of the race. 

After a delay of a little over 20 minutes, the barriers that Magnussen crashed into were repaired and the race began again with a standing start. 

Max Verstappen was leading the race at the time of the wreck, with Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton in P2 and P3 behind him.

According to Haas, Magnussen is okay after a check-over, ‘but is being kept a little while longer just for observations.’
