The Indian lined up sixth on the grid for the first race of the weekend and lost four places at the start, running 10th behind Sisa Ngebulana, who had gained five places, when the incident occurred.

Chasing the South African for ninth on Lap 7, Vaidyanathan made contact with the HHC Motorsport while heading towards Cascades.

The race, headed by Carlin's Ricky Collard, was immediately red-flagged after the Indian was launched into the air, rolling multiple times.

Series organisers reported that Vaidyanathan was "alert and conscious" after the crash, and was taken to the medical center for a precautionary test. He was released shortly thereafter.

Upon his return from the medical center, the Indian commented on the incident: "Ngebulana had a poor exit out of the first corner and we were side-by-side heading into the flat kink heading into Cascades.

"Unfortunately our wheels touched and after that my view was quite disturbing. I felt quite a few big hits but I have no idea what direction they were in or where they came from," he added.

“I am just very thankful to the people at Tatuus for the strength of the car, the people involved in the championship too and everyone in the team for all their support.

"Once the accident finished, I was in quite a bit of shock but once that initial traumatic period had subsided then it was all ok."

Meanwhile, Ngebulana was excluded from the race results and handed four penalty points for his part in the incident.
