FAN FOOTAGE of Max Verstappen's crash during the British Grand Prix on Sunday reveals just how brutal the incident was.
Amateur photographers were sat just behind the fence and were scattered with debris as the Red Bull driver crashed into a tyre wall.
Verstappen, 23, suffered a high-speed crash after colliding with Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone's famous Copse Corner.
The incident was worrying from the outset, with F1 officials producing the red flag moments later to halt the race.
But it was hard to grasp the intensity of the crash as professional cameramen were not placed nearby.
The amateur footage, obtained by the Daily Mail, shows the crowd scream in angst as Verstappen's Red Bull approaches them at high-speed.
Fans are placed just a dozen or so yards away from the fence, which is heavily protected by the tyre wall.
Some supporters are seen bracing for impact as large amounts of debris comes hurling their way.
One fan is seen asking a child if they're OK following the dramatic incident.
Verstappen was rushed to hospital to be checked after suffering the crash but thankfully avoided injury.
