Video: Formula 1 driver Sebastien Buemi loses front wheels in 200 mph crash |

Formula 1 is getting ready for the start of the Chinese GP this weekend and the first practice laps are already being recorded at the Shanghai circuit.

Today’s session was, however, remembered for a dramatic incident involving Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Buemi, who was involved in a dramatic crash. The pilot, who recorded poor times during the session, was heading into the last 10 minutes of free practice when his two front wheels both came off the car.

It seems that a faulty upright in the front of his car caused a huge strain on the front wheels, eventually resulting in the rupture of their supports. The Toro Rosso driver escaped unharmed but is still a bit shaken by the crash. His teammate, Jaime Alguersuari immediately entered the pits in order to prevent another crash.
