Will Sweet was standing with his fiancée on a packed hill just off Turn 2 when Magnussen thumped the wall and shred a tyre off the Haas VF-23, flinging a piece of debris that struck the fan the arm, which resulted in a cut.

“It slapped me in the arm and I was just standing there bleeding,” he told Australian radio station 3AW, according to Reuters.
“My arm was covering where my neck would’ve been, but if that had hit my fiancée, it would’ve got her right in the head.
“I realised how big it was and how heavy it was. Part of it was shredded and really sharp, if it hit me in a different angle, it could’ve been horrendous,” he added.
