Terrifying moment a British driver clips a wall and FLIPS his Formula E car in horror crash

British Formula E driver Alex Lynn is 'doing well' after suffering a horror crash during a race in Saudi Arabia. 

Footage of the incident shows the 27-year-old's Mahindra car collide with Mitch Evans' Jaguar before flipping upside down on track in Diriyah. 

A fixed camera to the side of a right bend captured the dramatic moment Lynn took off down the straight before colliding with the wall just out of shot. 

Alex Lynn suffered a horrendous crash on Saturday during a Formula E race in Saudi Arabia

The British driver flipped his car and skidded upside down before coming to a halt 

The race was brought to a stop while medical staff rushed to attend the crash site and swiftly take Lynn to hospital. 

Formula E is a single-seater motorsport championship in which racers compete using only electric cars and has been steadily growing in popularity since the inaugural season back in 2014. 

Miraculously, Lynn is 'well' and in a stable condition following the requisite medical tests. 

Formula E tweeted: 'We are thankful that Alex Lynn is well after this accident. 

'Testament to the medical staff, marshals and the @FIA who keep our sport safe and to Mitch Evans who abandoned his race to run to Alex's aid.'

Evans later reflected on the crash to Motorsport.com: 'It was not a nice accident. Basically, I was defending hard from Alex into [Turn] 18 and he drove close to the wall.

Lynn is well and in a stable condition following checks in hospital after his accident 

'He didn't really back out of it. Was there room? I'm not sure, I need to see the replay. I hope there was and I didn't do anything out of order.

'But he clipped my rear wheel and had an aeroplane crash. It was really nasty. I saw him go into the wall and I jumped out to make sure he was okay.

'You never want to see that sort of stuff. He's a friend as well. You don't want to see people go through that.

'I've spoken to him. He seems all fine but he's gone [to hospital] as a precaution to make sure there's nothing after the shock has worn off.

'The main thing is he's all good.'

Lynn has been competing in Formula E since 2016 and fifth is his best finish. The race in Saudi Arabia continued after halting for the accident and Britain's Sam Bird claimed victory. 

The race was halted while Lynn could be tended to by medics and the wreckage cleared
