“Chinese GP: Verstappen heads interrupted first practice”

April 7, 2017

Max Verstappen topped this morning’s highly interrupted opening Chinese Grand Prix practice at Shanghai International Circuit.

The Dutch racer set a best of 1:50.491s in damp and foggy conditions – the latter of which forced two lengthy red flags.

Such was the thickness of the fog, the medical helicopter was unable to land at the designated hospital Shanghai, rendering the session null and void.

The practice was red flagged for approximately 64 minutes of the session, but while there was some running, Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg spun off in turn two and became beached in the gravel, while several other drivers endured light spins in the Pirelli intermediate tyres.
