Hartley was speeding down the Wellington Straight, reportedly at 200 miles per hour when a failure in front-left suspension and steering caused the crash.

Driving down the 200mph Wellington Straight, Hartley suddenly lost all control of his vehicle as he went hurtling into the barriers.

Hartley immediately jumped out of his auto and went to the Silverstone medical centre for a precautionary check-up, where he was given the all-clear to continue driving.

Hartley's incident then saw Toro Rosso keep Pierre Gasly in the garage for the remainder of the session as it investigated what caused the failure, with work instantly taking place to inspect the front suspension on the other vehicle.

Upon replays it was clear the crash was through no fault of Hartley's own.
