Lewis Hamilton had a little excursion of the track during day 2 of pre-season testing. His car later picked up some damage, but was quickly fixed.

Early on in day 2 of pre-season testing Lewis Hamilton, equipped with aero-rakes, ran wide at Turn 10 at Bahrain International Circuit.

He quickly made his way into the pits where the team seemingly made some alterations to the car.

After he came out again, while he was making his way up the straight, a little piece came off the W14 and moments later Fernando Alonso ran over it. Fortunately, Alonso’s car was not damaged.
