Close Call During United States Grand Prix Practice
Carlos Sainz had a heart-stopping moment during today's practice for the United States Grand Prix as he narrowly avoided a collision with his former teammate Lando Norris.
Drifted Into Danger
Norris, who was warming up his McLaren, unexpectedly drifted into the path of Sainz's Ferrari, which was traveling at high speed. The Spaniard had to quickly change his line to avoid a potentially catastrophic crash.
Shaken, But Understanding
After the near-miss, Sainz could be heard reacting with shock, exclaiming, "Oh my God! whoa! Lando there. I think he didn't see me, but we nearly crashed." Despite the scare, Sainz was understanding about how the incident may have happened.
Both drivers are relieved that they escaped the incident unscathed and can now focus on Sunday's race. While there may not be a battle for the championship, with Max Verstappen already securing the title, there is still a lot at stake.
Hunting for Second Place
Lewis Hamilton is currently in third place on the F1 leaderboards, but he is determined to overtake Sergio Perez and secure second place. Hamilton is 30 points behind Perez, while Fernando Alonso is just 11 points behind Hamilton.
Five Races Left
With five Grands Prix remaining in the season, the outcome of this year's races may seem predictable with Verstappen's dominance. However, there is still excitement to be had as the drivers battle for their final positions in the standings.
