The three-time WTCC champion, in his LMP1 debut, lost control of the No. 7 Toyota TS050 Hybrid in damp conditions at Copse, slamming heavily into the barriers.
While Lopez managed to limp the car back to the pits, where it remains undergoing repairs, the Argentine has been evaluated at the trackside medical center and transferred to a local hospital for precautionary scans, per a Toyota spokesperson.
It’s still unclear if the No. 7 Toyota will rejoin the race, with less than 90 minutes remaining.
