The session was halted after Q3 because there was a flying ban over Moscow airspace because of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s flight.

[F1] Mercedes-Benz DTM Driver Juncadella Tests for Williams

The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team may be banned from the Formula 1 Young Driver Test at Silverstone, but at least Mercedes-Benz DTM driver and junior team member Daniel Juncadella is getting some action.
