FIA releases data of Leclerc and Stroll's big crashes in 2020

Data from Charles Leclerc's big crash at Monza and Lance Stroll's heavy shunt at Mugello has been released by the FIA

The FIA have shared details of Charles Leclerc's and Lance Stroll's big accidents from the 2020 Formula 1 season after a thorough investigation. Both drivers lost control of their cars before hitting the wall hard, instigating a red flag. Leclerc crashed at the Parablolica when he was pushing after a safety car restart before he made a mistake and hit the tyre barrier at 155km/h. The Ferrari driver came to a halt after just 7.5 metres from when he initially hit the barrier and suffered an impact of 32G. Leclerc came away unscathed despite the sudden stop. Analysis shows that Lance Stroll was travelling at 270km/h during the Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello when the rear of the car stepped out and the Racing Point driver lost control of his vehicle. The 50-metre gravel trap managed to slow the car down to 97km/h when Stroll hit the wall at an angle of 48 degrees, suffering a 19G impact. He suffered minor bruising and has since talked about the psychological battle he faced following the accident before he took his maiden pole position at the Turkish Grand Prix.
