The 37-year-old was hit by debris after crashing in the closing laps at Pocono Raceway oval in Pennsylvania.

Briton Jenson Button, the 2009 world champion who attended the funeral of French F1 driver Jules Bianchi a month ago, expressed his shock on Twitter.

“The motorsport world comes to a standstill once again,” said the McLaren driver. “I raced with Justin as far back as 1989 in karting and remember his smile was infectious, such a lovely guy.”
