The Ferrari man lost control in the tight third sector, smashing into the wall and destroying the front left of his car. The Spaniard appeared to lose control on the exit of turn 14, loving the rear tyres before hitting the wall.
He apologised to his team over the radio after the crash. The session was immediately red flagged with just over 15 minutes gone.

He crashed out at the start of the Australian Grand Prix, throwing away a chance of securing a podium. This was followed by an accident during qualifying at Imola which saw him start lower down the grid on Saturday. The Spaniard was also involved in a collision with Daniel Ricciardo at the start of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
