It’s always rather embarrassing to lose it when going in a straight line. But the 2016 rookie Manor driver, Pascal Wehrlein did just that. In front of everybody during qualifying for the Chinese Grand Prix.

Poor lad. In his defense, he has DRS open, went over a wet bit of track – basically a massive puddle – and hit a bump at the same time.
The incident gave the rest of the drivers chance for another cup of tea while marshals attended to the track.
