Both Haas Retired With The Same Issue Within A Couple Of Laps

An apparent wheel gun problem led to both Haas cars retiring from the Australian Grand Prix within two laps of each other

Haas was having a great race. Kevin Magnussen was running fourth after a brilliant start with Romain Grosjean close behind in fifth. It could have been the team’s best-ever result but then, the pit stops happened.

Magnussen ground to a halt a few corners after exiting with what he felt was a suspension issue - it turned out to be a loose wheel. Then, two laps later, Grosjean came in for his stop and incredibly, the exact same thing happened. Both cars out, just like that.

We feel your pain, Romain...

Grosjean’s car required a VSC to recover, which allowed Sebastian Vettel to pit and grab the lead. Ferrari grabbing the lead because of a well-timed retirement from the ‘Ferrari B-team’. Let the conspiracy theories begin!
