Formula 1: Albon Vettel’s crash sings on the radio

Vettel sings on the radio

Lewis Hamilton sets the fastest time in the second practice session for the Bahrain GP. Alex Albon crashed, Sebastian Vettel jokes on the pit radio.

Lewis Hamilton also sets the fastest time in the second practice session for the Bahrain GP. Alone: ​​Max Verstappen came within three tenths of a second to the newly crowned world champion. The Dutchman was even on the medium tires instead of the faster soft tires. This shows that there is still some room for improvement.
Meanwhile, his teammate Alex Albon once again failed to submit a letter of recommendation for a Red Bull cockpit for 2021. After a violent crash, training even had to be interrupted for a short time. Albon was physically unharmed, but mentally this should be another setback for the Thai, because the accident is on his account. Albon came next to the route, could no longer intercept an oncoming commuter and hit the side hard in the gang.

A second interruption of training was carried out by a stray dog. That brought Sebastian Vettel to show off his singing skills on the pit radio. “Who let the dogs out,” chirped Vettel and then joked: “If I had known that dogs were allowed, I would have brought mine.”

The German had something to laugh about today: He was 0.3 seconds faster than his team-mate Charles Leclerc. Nonetheless: Neither of them made it past places twelve and 14.
The key to victory at the weekend should also be about tire management. Verstappen complains on the pit radio: “The tires just die.” The rubber at the rear are particularly affected.
