Lewis Hamilton suffered a significant crash that brought out the red flag in FP3 at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver lost control of the back end of his car at turn 12 of the Spa circuit after running over a kerb and veered off track before crashing into the barriers, causing damage to the front-left of his car.

There were concerned faces in the Mercedes garage, but the five-time world champion confirmed he was okay before he was taken away in the medical car, while his W10 was towed back to the pit lane.

"I'm in the wall, guys – sorry," said Hamilton, who was able to climb out of the car at Les Fagnes.

Mercedes confirmed he did not need to attend the medical centre for a check-up and was back in the briefing room with his engineers.

Team-mate Valtteri Bottas soon enquired over team radio to check Hamilton was alright.

Mercedes will now have to examine the extent of the damage, which could impact whether they are able to take part in qualifying later on Saturday or face penalties for the race.

The team have struggled to match the pace of Ferrari in Belgium so far this weekend.

For the rest of the drivers, FP3 resumed once the track was clear after a delay of just over 20 minutes.
