The damaged car of Mercedes' British driver Lewis Hamilton is lifted unto a truck after he crashed into a wall during the third practice session at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Spa on August 31, 2019 ahead of the Belgian Formula One Grand Prix.
His car appeared to be badly damaged around the front and the left front wheel and looked as if it may need substantial repairs, or a chassis change, for the Briton to take part in qualifying scheduled for later on Saturday.
Hamilton was taken back to the paddock while the car was transported away on the back of an open truck which showed severe damage to both front wheels.
