The First practice session for the Azerbaijan was cancelled this morning after George Russell’s Williams Chassis was cracked after going over a loose manhole cover.
It was a bit of a comedy show, as the trick that picked up the damaged Williams crashed into into a bridge over the track.
The track has to be inspected and the manhole covers tightened up, unlike Monaco they are not welded shut, which would have made a lot more sense.
It was a massive impact and George’s head took a big impact from the shunt.
Only Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel recorded times before the session was stopped.
Leclerc 1:47.597 and Sebastian two seconds behind him.
