The Alpine driver sustained damage after completing just four laps out on the new circuit.
Esteban Ocon’s car was damaged when he hit a drain cover during the first practice session for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. He was only able to complete four laps before having to pit. The team will replace the chassis on his car due to the damage. Carlos Sainz also encountered the same issue and had to stop on the track, causing the session to be abandoned while the circuit was inspected by the FIA.
