Ericsson in hospital after crash

Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson is undergoing checks in hospital after a crash in final Formula 1 practice ahead of the British Grand Prix.

The Swede lost control at Stowe corner of the Silverstone track and span into the inside tyre barrier after hitting a barrier.

Ericsson was able to walk from the car and was taken to the circuit medical centre, before FIA doctors sent him to hospital in Oxford for "routine check-ups".

Lewis Hamilton outpaced Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg by 0.063 seconds in the final practice session.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen were third and fourth, while Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel recorded the fifth fastest time, but suffered another gearbox failure in the process.

The four-time champion was handed a five-place grid penalty at the Austrian Grand Prix last weekend after exceeding the authorised number of gearbox changes.

Vettel told Ferrari engineers at the end of final practice at Silverstone: "OK, I think we failed the gearbox again."

He will therefore receive another five-place grid penalty for Sunday's race.
