Spectators were left in a state of shock on Friday after seeing Moto GP rider Michele Pirro suffer a horrific clash during practice at the Italian Grand Prix.
31-year-old Italian Pirro was driving at full speed before he suddenly lost control of his vehicle at turn 1 of the circuit.
Pirro was then thrown off his bike and flung shockingly in the air before his body crashed back onto the Mugello track and rolled numerous times on the gravel.
