It was a day of accidents today at the Russian GP 2021 free practice sessions. First, it was Lando Norris who happened to brush against the barricades while entering the pit and then Antonio Giovinazzi was the one who crashed while taking a turn during the second practice session. Now, it was Lewis Hamilton who sent the jackman flying after entering the pit. It was all done inadvertently and the Mercedes racer too was rattled with the incident and inquired about his wellbeing.
