This is the second crash since the qualifying matches begun with the first happening during the Q1, where Nicholas Latifi lost the rear of his vehicle and veered off the track during the 13th turn at an estimated 106 mph.

Latifi would go on to describe the incident, "It didn't feel like such a big impact [at the time], I feel alright." He was most disappointed by failing to qualify after having qualified last at the Grand Prix in Bahrain in 2020.

"A really big impact this early on in the season is not great for the team and is incredibly disappointing."
