It's becoming clearer by the day that Pascal Wehrlein's may not have a future in F1. He seldom can beat his lowly rated Sauber teammate Ericsson and he crashes a lot.

He crashed again in Hungary this morning in 2nd practice for the Hungarian GP bringing out the red flags.

Replays show Wehrlein lost his Sauber midway around the quick Turn 11. He caught the initial snap, but then it rotated the other way, pitching him into the barriers at high speed.

It was a big impact, but the German thankfully looks to be ok.

"I crashed, massive," says the German somberly.

"Are you ok?" ask Sauber.

"Yes, all ok," says Wehrlein.
