British driver Callum Ilott walked away unscathed from a 130mph crash in his maiden Formula One outing on Tuesday.
The 20-year-old from Cambridge, who is a member of the Ferrari driver academy, ran off the track at the high-speed third bend in Barcelona, before crashing into the barriers.
Ilott sustained extensive damage to the front of his Alfa Romeo, and took no further part in the running.
"After the big crash in Turn 3, the most important thing is Callum Ilott is fine and injury-free," said Alfa Romeo on Twitter.
The Englishman had recorded 41 laps before the incident, which happened shortly after the lunch break.
Prior to his crash at one of the fastest sections of the Circuit de Catalunya, Ilott posted to Twitter: "First F1 miles on the clock and a morning full of positives."
The young driver is currently competing in Formula Two, the feeder series to Formula One. He scored his first podium in Spain last Sunday, finishing third.
Valtteri Bottas meanwhile, topped the time charts on the opening day of this week's F1 test.
The Mercedes driver finished 1.4 seconds clear of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.
