Williams’ Nicholas Latifi and Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll were involved in a spectacular F1 crash during qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix.
Qualifying at the Australian Grand Prix had to be abandoned after a vicious collision between Nicholas Latifi and Lance Stroll threw debris all over the track.
Formula 1 stewards are investigating the accident in which Latifi spun and smashed his car into pieces.
Fortunately, both drivers were physically well after the collision.

There appeared to be confusion between the Williams and Aston Martin drivers. Latifi pulled away to let Stroll through, then tried to get back in front of the slowing driver.
As Latifi walked in to stroll, the Aston Martin driver swerved in, probably trying to let an Alfa Romeo through on his left. That’s when the Williams and Aston Martin collided, ripping Latifi’s rear wing to shreds and throwing his car into the wall.
Fans who followed the whole thing on Twitter responded with a slew of jokes once it was clear no one was harmed.
Obviously Williams and Aston Martin didn’t make it to Q2.
The drivers won’t be doing any more laps, but their mechanics definitely have some work to do to get the cars ready for the race.
