Valtteri Bottas‘ qualifying at the Mexican Grand Prix came to a sudden end as he suffered a heavy crash at the final corner of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
Bottas took P6 away from Saturday’s running, but it remains to be seen if Mercedes will be forced into significant repairs on the Finn’s car, which could trigger grid penalties.
After getting out of shape through the stadium section, Bottas became trapped in the barriers and skated along until he ran into a section of barrier jutting into his path.
Check out the shunt below.
