Australian driver Alex Peroni has walked away from a horror crash in Saturday’s Formula Three race at Monza.

A week on from Anthoine Hubert’s death in a Formula Two crash at Spa-Francorchamps, Peroni, 19, was launched airborne on the exit of the high-speed Parabolica corner.

Peroni appeared to strike a kerb, causing his car to sail through the air before crashing down on the fencing.

Incredibly, Peroni appeared to escape without injury, but the teenager has been taken to the on-track medical centre for tests.

The crash delayed the start of the final Formula One practice session ahead of qualifying for Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix.

The FIA have since removed the kerb which appeared to play a role in Peroni’s jaw-dropping accident.
