Video: EuroFormula Open Car pitched into dramatic roll at Monza

EuroFormula Open Championship driver Christian Mansell survived a dramatic crash during race two at Monza.

Christian Mansell emerged unscathed from a dramatic crash at the Monza circuit after colliding with a competitor at the Ascari corner.

During race two out of three of the Monza round, Mansell was running in third place and defending against Francesco Simonazzi.

Simonazzi made a move to the inside of the first part of the Ascari corners, the two drivers came together, forcing Mansell wide.

Mansell's car was then pitched into a roll when the car caught the gravel trap, with the car landing upside down, and the race being red flagged.

He was unhurt by the incident, and the race was able to resume, being won by part-time Formula 3 driver, and Euroformula Open Championship leader, Oliver Goethe.

Mansell, a 17-year-old Australian competitor of no relation to 1992 F1 champion Nigel Mansell, had managed to set the fastest lap of the race prior to his crash, which remained unbeaten after the restart.
