not the first one hitting a bump, though. Looks like the teams didn't expect the track to be this bumpy.
Shwartzman also had a very nasty snap on a bump in FP1, he somehow saved it.

Embarrassing that the session has not been stopped (i know they don't for FPs).

16 mins lost for a crash. Bah

Yeah embarrassing. This is a complete shitshow.
It should have taken 5 minutes.

yeah, but Red Bull not getting to practice the car is probably the best thing which can happen for the race.

That is not what I mean.
They should add those minutes from a red flag to the session, so 60 min plus 25 min = 85 min.

Toto Wolff just said that the turn Sainz crashed it was always a full speed one, even in FP1, but not in FP2 anymore. Only solution would be to increase ride height and soften the suspension, but that's obviously not quick.

It also looked like Hulk was taken out by this...once he bottomed on the kerb, the car lost all downforce.

Agree. Hulk’s had his day. Tbh, I’d rather see someone like Pourchaire in there, just to inject some fresh blood.
