The Dane crashed at the exit of the 180mph Eau Rouge/Raidillon corner, bringing the race to a halt because of extensive damage to the barriers.

He was taken to hospital with a left ankle injury.

Magnussen, 23, later wrote on Twitter: "On my way home now with a sore ankle but will be ready for Monza."
