He was seen slamming in the wall in his No 20 Porsche 9191 Hybrid after he collided with the 90 AF Corse Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni.
A statement on the official FIA website read: "The race ended under the safety car after a serious accident between the #20 Porsche of Mark Webber and the #90 AF Corse Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni.
"Both drivers were taken to the circuit's medical centre and, after initial examination, to the local Hospital Bandeirantes for further checks, their condition has been reported as satisfactory."
Meanwhile, the Porsche Motorsport Twitter account confirmed that Webber was safe. It reads: “Heavy crash for @AussieGrit in #porsche919hybrid no 20. Driver is ok. @PorscheNewsroom @FIAWEC.”
