Dutch Grand Prix Qualifying Brought To A Halt Thanks To Unruly Fans
The Dutch Grand Prix qualifying is well underway, however, it was quickly brought to a halt at the start of Q2 with a red flag.
Alex Albon was first out in his Williams to get his time in but lost his pace after a fan threw a lit flare onto the track causing a red flag.

Fans had been told to hand their flares in before heading to the track but some have clearly not. They were also told that they will be removed from the circuit if they light flares or fireworks.
The fan who threw the flare was quickly identified and has now been removed from the track and Q2 is underway with the Red Bull’s already out.
