Chinese Grand Prix – Practice

Practice 1
FA’s Ferrari engine failed again – each driver is limited to 8 engines for the season and he’ll need to use #3 for qualifying tomorrow
SB has a very scary moment approaching the hairpin – both front wheels ripped off the Toro Rosso under braking! It’s hard to see even in a slow motion replay, but apparently an upright failed on the right wheel which then caused the left wheel to fail too.
