Haas F1 team boss Guenther Steiner confirmed the driver has suffered burns to his hands and ankles, but is otherwise OK, but as a precaution he will be transferred to hospital.

During the suspension, Lewis Hamilton - who is aiming for his 11th victory - tweeted to say that he's 'grateful' that Romain is safe.

He added: "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."
