The cars were only able to complete a few laps before having to return to the pits. Surveillance cameras are behind the cancellation.
It’s an unexpected way to start the Formula 1 weekend. On Friday, in Canada, surveillance cameras posted outside the circuit failed during the first free practice session. The FIA decided for safety and after 40 long minutes of waiting, to cut short the first free practice session of the Grand Prix. Outdated cameras were a problem for event security.
Direct consequence: the organizers and the FIA have decided to extend the 2nd session by 30 minutes. During the short moments of the first free practice session, Pierre Gasly was the victim of a technical incident and caused the release of a red flag. 12 drivers were able to complete a few laps.
