Formula 3 driver Simo Laaksonen has been cleared and released by medical staff at Spa following a high-speed crash during Sunday's race at Blanchimont corner.

In the first race at Spa since Saturday's Formula 2 race was suspended following a fatal accident involving Anthoine Hubert, Laaksonen crashed out at speed in the opening stages of the F3 race, with his car pitching low into the tyre barrier.

The race was put behind the Safety Car while medical crews attended the crash site, with Laaksonen exiting his MP Motorsport-run car before it was craned away. He was taken to the medical centre in the medical car before the race resumed.

In an update issued on Sunday afternoon, F3 confirmed that Laaksonen had been cleared from the medical centre and was OK.

The F3 race on Sunday was won by Marcus Armstrong ahead of Yuki Tsunoda and Robert Shwartzman.
