For the second time in a week, good fortune was on a Sauber driver's side.

After Charles Leclerc was spared injury last Sunday at Spa, his team mate Marcus Ericsson's emerged unscathed from a dramatic crash and a seemingly endless number of barrel rolls at Monza Friday afternoon.

At first glance, the culprit for the wreck appears to be a DRS malfunction on the Swedish driver's Sauber, a failure that also befell Ericsson at Silverstone earlier this summer. Regardless, the full-scale crash test offers another validation of the incredible strength of the modern F1 car.
