Then, reduce adrift of the main pack, Vettel’s race then all of the sudden got here to an abrupt finish on Lap Eight when his suspension failed coming via the downhill Flip 9.
“I feel the suspension simply failed. Yeah, failed. I feel we’re out,” Vettel stated earlier than coming to a cease on the nearest run-off space.
