Stroll: FP2 was a bizarre, my feet were ‘burning like crazy’

Published

Formula 1 rookie Lance Stroll said he felt his feet were “burning like crazy” following he had made an unscheduled stop to climb out of his Williams car during Friday second practice session for Bahrain Grand Prix.

“I don’t know what it was, but there was some burning in my feet,” he said. “I just had to get out of there because it was killing me – I just wanted to get out.”

The Canadian done 36 laps during the floodlit second practice session run in the evening after an earlier day-time session was held in temperatures touching 49 degrees Celsuis. He was also expected to stay on track to complete a Virtual Safety Car (VSC) test, but instead drove directly into the pits.

“I needed to jump out of the car, it was really, really painful,” said Stroll.

“I tried to bring it to the end, but when I was told to do another lap for the virtual safety car I said ‘I really cannot do it, sorry’.”

He was sixth fastest in the opening session and fell to 16th in the second session.

“FP1 was really good, getting into it quickly, feeling good with the car,” Stroll added.

“It’s just FP2 that was the only negative really. All session, I was really struggling with the car. FP2 was a bit of a bizarre session.”
