On Sunday, Zhou Guanyu was engaged in a terrifying incident that halted the British Grand Prix immediately .

Zhou Guanyu is a Chinese racing driver who currently drives for Alfa Romeo in Formula One.

He is the first Formula One driver from China.

Zhou's car slid down gravel and his Alfa Romeo seemed to be stuck between a fence and a tire barrier at the first corner.

The race was red flagged and George Russell, one of the drivers involved in the accident, ran in his car to the tire barrier to check on Zhou.

Team manager Beit Zehnder told German broadcaster Sky Sport that Zhou was speaking and was being taken to the medical center at Silverstone.

Russell was initially hit from behind and knocked over to Zhou, whose car blew into a gravel trap and over a tire wall into the retaining fence.

The car was sliding on a "halo" that protects the driver's head.

The FIA, the governing body for F1, said Zhou and Williams driver Alexander Albon are being medically evaluated.

The drivers returned to the pits to await the restart.
