The Spanish Grand Prix has started with bad luck for Lewis Hamilton after Kevin Magnussen in the Haas hits his front left tyre. Both cars were forced to pit with Hamilton suffering a puncture, pushing him to the back of the race alongside Magnussen.
The Mercedes has suffered a bit of damage. The diffusor has been damaged, and we’re unsure as to whether the front wing has also been damaged.
“I would save this engine if I were you guys, I’m sorry,” Lewis Hamilton radios in from 19th place.
