This season saw the first near fatal crash in F1 history ever since Jules Bianchi in 2014. It was at Austria and saw Kyle Macleod and Lewis Hamilton both hit the wall after coming off the track, Macleod came off much worse than Hamilton as the speed they were going and the impact into Hamilton turned Macleod over the wall. Hamilton was cleared to keep racing following a tense few days in a medical facility in Salzburg however Macleod was comatosed and put into critical condition following the crash, he would remain this way for most of the year however he made a surprisingly quick recovery following months of physio and rehabilitation.
