Race stopped on lap 56 due an accident involving Olivier Panis

1. Michael Schumacher 2. Jean Alesi 3. Giancarlo Fisichella

Report to follow soon.

The rear end of Panis' car went, and he was pitched into the tyre barrier after turn 4. The race was kept behind the safety car, and on lap 56 the race was stopped.

Initial (unconfirmed) reports from the track indicate that Panis has nothing worse than broken legs. More details to follow.
