Alpine MISERY compounded following Gasly qualifying crash

Alpine MISERY compounded following Gasly qualifying crash

Pierre Gasly's miserable Friday afternoon took another turn for the worse during Q1 as the French driver collided with the wall.

The 27-year-old was forced to end his involvement in FP1 early following a serious engine issue, and his Q1 involvement also came to a premature end.

Gasly slammed into the outside wall in the same place Nyck de Vries had done previously, causing the second red flag of qualifying.

Red flag mayhem

Azerbaijan Grand Prix qualifying is notoriously perilous for the teams and drivers with red flags not uncommon around the tight corners of Baku.

With two red flags in Q1 alone, 2023's qualifying session followed the trend.

Nyck de Vries brought out a red flag with ten minutes left on the clock after he missed the braking zone on the run down to turn three.

Just minutes after the restart, Pierre Gasly crashed his Alpine A523 in the same location, bringing out the second red flag of the session.
