Silverstone British F3: Felix Serralles escapes serious injury in Jack Harvey incident

British Formula 3 championship contender Felix Serralles has escaped serious injury after his airborne incident in Sunday's final race at Silverstone

Silverstone British F3: Felix Serralles escapes serious injury in Jack Harvey incident

Puerto Rican racer Serralles, who was launched skywards on the Wellington Straight while battling with title rival Jack Harvey for seventh place, was admitted to Northampton General Hospital with suspected broken vertebrae.

Although he raced on after the incident and actually passed Harvey to finish seventh, he was in severe pain and had to be lifted out of his car in parc ferme by medical staff.

But his injuries have been found to amount to nothing worse than a badly bruised coccyx.

This will likely force him out of Tuesday's 'joker' test day that Fortec Motorsport has lined up at Pembrey, but he could be fine to return to the cockpit for Thursday's official test at Donington Park, ahead of the final round at the same venue at the end of this month.

Race stewards have decided to take no action after reviewing evidence of the incident.
