Formula E briefly halted their practice session today after Sam Bird’s car lost its wheel, sending the wheel rolling down the track.
Apparently a wheel is faster than a three-wheeled Formula E racer. Who’d have thought?
Fortunately, no one was injured by the Virgin Racing car’s stray wheel, and the session was quickly restarted.
Update: Bizarrely, this loose wheel problem caused Sam Bird to be excluded from Free Practice 2:
“I’ll take ‘Rules That Make No Sense’ for $800, Trebek.”
If there’s anybody who needs a little extra practice time, it’s the guy whose session was cut short by a wheel falling off.
