AlphaTauri driver Daniel Ricciardo has been transported a local hospital for precautionary reasons after injuring his wrist during practice at the Dutch Grand Prix on Friday.

The Australian crashed roughly 20 minutes into the second practice session in the Netherlands. He collided into the wall just after McLaren driver Oscar Piastri had spun out in front of him.

“We can confirm that Daniel Ricciardo has been transferred to the local hospital for further checks following his crash in FP2,” the FIA said in a statement.

Ricciardo is back on the grid after he replaced Nyck de Vries at AlphaTauri just two weeks before the mid-summer break.
