Heavy crash for Latifi brings Q2 to an early end

Williams won't be pleased with their qualifying session at Zandvoort as both George Russell and Nicholas Latifi brought out the red flag with separate incidents. Latifi's crash was certainly heavier, resulting in an early end to Q2.

There has been no shortage of red flags so far this weekend at Zandvoort and that trend continued during qualifying, with Nicholas Latifi bringing Q2 to an early end after crashing at Turn 8.

Latifi was carrying too much speed into the corner and flew across the gravel and into the barriers, ending his afternoon.

The incident brought out the red flag, but with less than two minutes on the clock, the decision was made not to restart the session, meaning Williams teammate George Russell, Lance Stroll, Lando Norris, Latifi and Yuki Tsunoda were all eliminated.

Minutes earlier Russell brought out the red flag as well, after losing control of his car at Turn 13 and sliding rearwards into the barriers. Russell was able to bring his car back to the pits, though the session was stopped for several minutes.
