Teammates Keep Getting Up In Each Others' Space At The Austin F1 Race

Formula One drivers Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson may not be sharing a giant latté with each other at Kerbey Lane after the race, either. These two Sauber teammates whacked into each other at Turn 1 early in the United States Grand Prix.

Oops.

Needless to say, there was a yellow flag shortly afterwards to pick up all the stray bits from these cars.

Nasr pitted for a new front wing and took on soft tires for the drying conditions during the stop.

Ericsson, unfortunately, has just brought out the safety car. He radioed in that his engine quit, and he’s having to be fetched from the side of the track.

My favorite part of this otherwise amazing race so far has been when they cut away from the LIVE race, not for commercial, for an interview with Alan Permane about wing endplates!

Scintillating!
