Aston Martin have confirmed Lance Stroll is uninjured after he suffered a heavy crash at the end of Q1 during qualifying for the Singapore Grand Prix.
Stroll appeared to be relatively unhurt from the accident and climbed from the car without assistance. He was attended to at the scene of the crash by FIA medical delegate Dr Ian Roberts before being taken to the medical centre in the Medical Car.
In a statement, Aston Martin confirmed that their driver had escaped injury from the shunt.
“He got out of the car unaided and was taken to the medical centre for a precautionary assessment,” said the team. “Lance was cleared by the on-site medical team and returned to the team at track.”
Aston Martin also paid tribute to the “ongoing work of the FIA and the safety measures of current F1 cars.”
The session resumed after an extensive delay due to barrier repairs made necessary due to the crash. Stroll’s team mate, Fernando Alonso, reached Q3 to qualify in seventh position on the grid, six tenths of a second behind pole winner Carlos Sainz Jnr.
