F2 racers taken to hospital

Formula Two racers Theo Pourchaire and Enzo Fittipaldi were airlifted to hospital on Sunday after a start-line crash in the Saudi Arabian round of the Formula One feeder series. Both drivers were conscious and were extricated from their cars by medical crews, governing body the FIA said in a statement. “The drivers were immediately attended to by emergency and medical crews. Both have been transferred by ambulance and helicopter to King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah,” added the statement. The crash between Frenchman Pourchaire, who races for ART, and Fittipaldi, who is the grandson of Brazilian Formula One double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi and races for the Charouz team, brought out the red flags on the first lap. Formula Two was being run as a support event to the inaugural Saudi Arabian F1 Grand Prix at the weekend on the Jeddah Corniche street track.
