Billy Monger has suffered leg injuries as a result of an incident involving Patrik Pasma during round six of the British Formula 4 Championship at Donington Park.

The incident at Schwantz Corner brought out an immediate red flag and Monger was airlifted to the Queen's Medical Centre from the scene of the accident following a lengthy extraction process from his JHR Developments prepared car.

The 17-year old was unable to avoid the slowing Carlin machine driven by Pasma after becoming unsighted behind a group of cars heading towards the approach of Schwantz Corner.

A joint statement, issued by the British Formula F4 Championship, TOCA and the Donington Park has been released and reads as follows:

"This statement follows an incident involving Patrik Pasma (no. 21 - Carlin) and Billy Monger (no. 23 - JHR Developments) during Round 6 of the British Formula 4 Championship at Donington Park.

"Monger has been carefully extracted from the car after suffering leg injuries, and has since been airlifted to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham for further examination.

"Pasma was also carefully extracted from his car. He was fully conscious and immediately taken to the on-site medical centre. He has since been taken to the Queen's Medical Centre for further assessment.

"Further information will be provided in due course."

Pasma was also sent to the same medical facility for further observation.

The 16 year old driver's Carlin squad released the following statement: "Following an incident in race three of the Formula Four British Championship at Donington Park this afternoon, Carlin driver Patrik Pasma was taken to the on-site Medical Centre for assessment.

"Patrik, who is fully conscious and able to communicate with team personnel, will now be transferred by ambulance to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham for further checks and observation overnight.
