With nine minutes left on the clock for Q1, the Williams was removed and the barriers repaired promptly ensuring that the action could get back underway.
Heartbreak for Sargeant
In the aftermath of the crash, Williams team principal, James Vowles, revealed just how disappointing it was for both Sargeant and the team.
“Heartbreak for Logan as well, he was overlayed to a millisecond on top of Alex [Albon], just coming out of the last corner, had wheel slip," he told Sky Sports.
"That’s game over. A disappointing end to things, a lot of work [to be done] overnight. More importantly, Logan built up to this weekend, started to have some good pace, but just can’t put it all together.
“The main thing is this: For a number of races Logan has actually been on an old aerodynamic package in a number of ways. Actually, a bit of a hybrid just simply because parts are becoming more and more difficult to come by.
"As we certainly near the end of the year under the cost cap, what you don’t want to be doing is over-producing parts and we’ve had more attrition than we expected I think it’s fair to say.
"We have enough to deal with this accident as it is today, but it will mean that we have to divert attention away from other items in order to produce more spare parts before we get to the end of the year."
