Mick Schumacher's first free practice session for the week ended early after having a "Power Unit issue" during his "Quali sim laps" according to Haas F1 Team's twitter. Unfortunately, he had to stop on track, resulting in a red flag and FP2 having to stop whilst his car was moved. He had also only just returned to track after being in the pits and changing his hard tyres to soft ones. Hopefully Haas can rectify this situation in time for FP3 and qualifying tomorrow.
