Norris was damaged when Kvyat’s Toro Rosso lost control which caused him to hit Carlos Sainz and then Norris, who was forced off the track. The Russian was given a drive-through penalty for his involvement with Norris and Kvyat retiring later in the race.
Norris made light of the incident after the race with a social media post but recalled his experience, revealing he felt like a “passenger” as his car tipped in the air.
“I thought I was going to go over,” said Norris.
“I was a passenger, and not in control of anything.
“I had to wait and hope for the best, there was quite a bit of air time, I went flying for a bit.
“All I saw was blue sky until I landed again, and then my vision came back.
“I could think again and I realised what had just happened, I didn’t know when to breathe and I lost my breath for a bit.
“It was a shock, and I was winded initially.
"It wasn’t nice,” he added.
