Peroni, 19, drives for the Campos Racing Formula 3 team in the Formula One feeder series this season, and currently sits in 20th place in the standings with a best result of eighth position at the Circuit Paul Ricard back in June.
Racing in front of the Italian Formula One crowd earlier today, Peroni apparently ran wide at final Parabolica corner and made contact with one of the many 'sausage' curbs at the venue - violently launching the Australian's car into a series of terrifying mid-air barrel rolls before coming to rest in the catch fencing that line the perimeter of the historic racing venue.
Fears for the safety of the driver were soon laid to rest as Peroni was unbelievably able to walk away from his destroyed car, heading to the circuit medical centre for routine checks, where it is understood that no significant injuries have been found on the young driver.
The accident occurred during the closing stages of Saturday's race, and as a result of the subsequent investigation the FIA have confirmed all sausage curbs have been removed from the Parabolica corner for the remainder of the F1 weekend.
