The FIA has said that it will launch a 'through review of the events involving the deployment of recovery vehicles' after a near-miss with a crane during the Japanese Grand Prix.
The crane entered the track to recover Carlos Sainz's stricken F1-75, after he crashed on the opening lap of the race in the tricky wet conditions.
Several drivers have already spoken out about the situation saying that it "should never happen again ever," and called for races to be stopped if a crane enters the track.
Some drew on the previous experience Formula 1 has with cranes, after Jules Bianchi tragically lost his life during the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix after hitting a recovery vehicle.
The statement from the governing body reads: "While it is normal practice to recover cars under Safety Car and Red Flag conditions, due to the particular circumstances and also taking into account feedback from of a number of drivers, the FIA has launched a thorough review of the events involving the deployment of recovery vehicles during the Japanese Grand Prix.
"This is part of the common practice of debrief and analysis of all race incidents to ensure continual improvements of processes and procedures."
