Hamilton punctures Mercedes with heavy hit into wall!

Hamilton punctures Mercedes with heavy hit into wall!

Lewis Hamilton had a hairy moment early in the second practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix, sliding into the wall at Turn 9 of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and causing a puncture at the very least for his Mercedes car.

Hamilton took to the radio to tell the team: "Sorry about that."

Mercedes opted to change the entire rear end of Hamilton's car, ending his session very prematurely.

Hamilton should avoid a penalty for a change of gearbox, as the race-spec one will not have been fitted for Friday practice.

Hamilton had gone quickest in FP1, leading Valtteri Bottas by two tenths with Charles Leclerc a second adrift in third.
