In photos: Zhou's dramatic British GP start crash as it happened

Zhou Guanyu has escaped from a scary incident on the first lap of the British Grand Prix, which saw him fly into the Turn 1 catch fencing at speed.

Zhou Guanyu was at the centre of a terrifying crash shortly after Sunday afternoon's British Grand Prix got underway at Silverstone. As the lights went out, Pierre Gasly found himself sandwiched between Zhou and George Russell, who closed together, with Zhou's car flipping upside down. Zhou skated across the gravel before his car vaulted over the tyre barriers and into the catch fencing, eventually coming to a halt at an awkward angle. After receiving medical attention in his car, Alfa Romeo confirmed that Zhou was "okay" and had been taken to the Medical Centre for checks. A lengthy delay followed, with the race resuming shortly before 16:00 local time. Check out how the incident unfolded in the photo gallery below...
