Sebastian Vettel was forced to retire after just eight laps of the United States Grand Prix after suffering a dramatic rear suspension failure.
Vettel’s race begun in dismal fashion as he dropped from second to seventh in the opening few laps.
And things soon went from bad to worse for the German as he ran slightly wide over Turn 9, which broke his rear-right suspension, popping the car up onto three wheels.
Vettel pulled over to the side, allowing the race to continue, and retired immediately.
Sebastian Vettel’s race is over
