Felipe Massa's German Grand Prix lasted little more than a corner, but the Brazilian can count himself lucky to walk away from a crash with Kevin Magnussen that saw his car flip.

Massa's Williams was caught by the McLaren as they competed for the racing line.

The safety car was called out, but the race continued soon after.

Massa, meanwhile, was able to walk away, in no small part down to the remarkable safety measures built into modern Formula One cars.

There has not been a fatality in an F1 event since Ayrton Senna lost his life more than 20 years ago in San Marino.
