Video: Ocon's strong accident in FP3 of the Miami GP

Esteban Ocon suffered a serious accident shortly after the start of the third free practice session of the Miami Grand Prix. The Alpine driver had waited a few minutes to go out on track and his first fast lap did not end as well as he would have liked.

Turn 14 saw the accident of the Frenchman, who lost control of his car and crashed into the barriers on the outside of the corner. Neither Ocon nor his teammate had managed to complete a fastest lap when the session had to be stopped.

Ocon had to go through the medical center to be able to receive the ‘fit’ to run from the medical services, since the force of the impact triggered the alarms of the sensors that the pilots carry inside their cabins.

The third free standings were stopped for around twelve minutes, as Ocon’s accident required the stewards to take great care in cleaning the track due to the amount of pieces of fiber that were scattered on it. The stopwatch did not stop, as is usual in free practice sessions, and resumed with just over half an hour remaining on the clock, although with one less car on the track.

This red flag is added to those of Friday: in FP1, Bottas caused one, while FP2 suffered two. One was caused by the repeat offender Latifi , although this time it was because his car stopped, while the other was due to a spectacular accident by Carlos Sainz, coincidentally at the same point as Ocon’s.

The circuit, which makes its debut this year in F1, has proven to be quite delicate in certain aspects. Its surface, quite slippery, has come to be retouched during the night in turn 17, after detecting damage to it and in turn 7.

Ocon, 15th in the first free practice and 9th in the seconds, was trying to find the time that separates him from his teammate, Fernando Alonso. The French box side will have to work hard to get the #31 car ready for qualifying.
