Driver: Sebastien Buemi
Race: Chinese Grand Prix
Complex Says: Most of the crashes listed here took place during actual races. This one didn't, but that doesn't mean it doesn't qualify as one of the worst Formula One crashes of all-time. It occurred during a practice lap, when Buemi hit the brakes (while the car was traveling 190 mph!) and his front suspension failed him. It caused both of his front wheels to come off, sending him flying down the track without the ability to steer. To his credit, he shook it off and participated in the race the next day. You've got balls, buddy.
