In the final five minutes of FP2, Leclerc lost control of his Ferrari into Turn 22, a high-speed left-hander.

His car pirouetted into the barriers, completely destroying the rear of his car. 

The team confirmed shortly after FP2 Leclerc's chassis and power unit can be used for the rest of the weekend.

Leclerc will be thankful that his chassis remained undamaged as Ferrari was forced to change it between qualifying and the grand prix in Qatar after finding a crack in it which severely affected his performance at the Losail Circuit.

A statement from Ferrari read: "Charles came back to the hospitality after routine medical checks having been given the all-clear by the doctors."

The team also confirmed that it is now checking for chassis or power unit damage ahead of final practice on Saturday.

The Monegasque ended the session 10th fastest overall, 0.7s shy of seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton who set the pace for Mercedes.
