Formula Three driver Alex Peroni walked away from a huge airborne crash at the Italian Grand Prix on Saturday, a week after French F2 racer Anthoine Hubert was killed in Belgium.

The 19-year-old Australian hit a raised 'sausage' kerb at Parabolica and his Campos Racing car was flung high into the air before flipping and landing upside down on the tyre wall, coming to rest against the wire fence.

Peroni walked to the medical vehicle unaided. No other driver was involved, with the race finishing behind the safety car.

Formula One's final practice session before qualifying was delayed while repairs were made to the barriers and the offending kerb was removed.

Formula Three qualifying had to be halted on Friday for safety reasons after a queue of cars lined up on the back straight preparing to start their timed runs while others approached at speed.

Safety in the support series to Formula One is under increased scrutiny after the events of Spa-Francorchamps last Saturday.

Hubert died after his car was hit at speed by Juan Manuel Correa's after the French driver had gone off into the barriers at Spa's fast Raidillon corner.

American-Ecuadorian Correa is in a 'critical but stable condition' in an induced coma in a London hospital.

Hubert was the first driver fatality at a Formula One race weekend since Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger were killed at Imola in 1994.
