Spectacular roll and crash in GP3

Russian Konstantin Tereshchenko had a very lucky escape last night, in his first ever GP3 race.

Rain was falling from 15 minutes into the race at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and the 20-year-old debutant lost control of his car while braking.

His Trident car went over the kerb at the final chicane and was launched into an incredible airborne barrel-roll, before slamming into the barriers and bursting into flames.

Tereshchenko quickly scrambled from the car and was luckily uninjured in the crash.
