The wreck started when Ryan Tveter slid off of the racing surface at Red Bull Ring in Austria, going through the grass before hitting the gravel trap. That’s when driver Peter Li Zhi Cong emerged from the dust and hit Tveter, sending Li into an airborne barrel roll and picking up Pedro Piquet in the wreck as well.The crash ended the race with just over seven minutes remaining. Both Li and Tveter went to the hospital after the crash, with Li airlifted for potential head and back injuries.A team statement said Li sustained broken bones in his heel that will require surgery and four fractured vertebrae that will not need surgery.
