Sky Sports presenter Martin Brundle said: "That's a miracle. It pierced the barriers like a can opener.

 

"They're constantly trying to improve the structural stability of the chassis and that's just saved his life. That is extraordinary.

 

"Romain went with the front half of his chassis."

 

Hamilton tweeted from the paddock: "I'm so grateful Romain is safe. Wow... the risk we take is no joke, for those of you out there that forget that we put our life on the line for this sport and for what we love to do.

 

"Thankful to the FIA for the massive strides we've taken for Romain to walk away from that safely."
