The 5th round of the German Formula 3 championship was overshadowed with a serious accident at Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit in eighth lap of the 10th race of the season on Sunday.

The race was red flagged under safety car in 10th lap. After a collision between the two Dutch drivers Nijenhuis and van Eeuwijk in Castrol-S, van Eeuwijk's car became airborne, overturned, landed in the gravel on its rollbar and slipped back to the track, where the roll bar broke off at the curbs. 19-year-old Wouter van Eeuwijk suffered severe head injuries and a broken cervical. He was taken into an artificial coma later in hospital.
