On Wednesday, the Scuderia Ferrari team suffered a small hiccup when Sebastian Vettel went off track and crashed out. It resulted in valuable time lost to gather any important data.

According to the Ferrari team, it was a wheel rim issue that was the main culprit. Later, when speaking to the media about the crash, Vettel said, “Thank God the impact was not too violent.

A Ferrari statement read, “After thorough checks we found that Seb’s off yesterday was due to a rim issue. The rim had been damaged a few seconds before by an impact with a foreign object.”

As a result of the crash, the Maranello squad’s testing schedule has had to be altered. So, instead of both drivers splitting a day between them, they will get one whole day in the car.
