Hartley Hit A Bird During Qualifying And Damaged His Front Wing

The Toro Rossos were flying during qualifying, but Brendon Hartley’s session almost didn’t take off. During Q1 he suddenly reported “crazy understeer” at Turn 7. It turned out he’d hit a poor, unsuspecting bird, with Toro Rosso tweeting a picture of the hole it caused.

That extra understeer will have made Hartley need to feather the throttle on his way back to the pits to take on a new wing – something the bird didn’t have the luxury of.

Hartley swiftly bounced back from the setback and, egged on by his team, managed to qualify a career-best 11th.
