Second Formula 1 practice for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix will take place on time despite the cancellation of the opening session and subsequent Formula 2 qualifying delay.
Williams driver George Russell ran over a loose manhole cover on the run down to Turn 3 in the early stages of morning practice, which causes significant damage to his car.
The session was initially red-flagged then cancelled completely shortly after as a full track inspection was initiated by the FIA, with the Renault team claiming 300 covers needed to be checked around the circuit.
F2 qualifying, which splits F1's two Friday practices, was postponed by half an hour.
It concluded shortly after 4pm local time, less than an hour before the scheduled start of F1's next session
But the second F1 practice session will begin at 5pm local time as planned.
