Pierre Gasly ended up splitting Verstappen and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in FP1, the only driver to get within three-tenths of the Dutch driver as Gasly set a lap time 0.256s slower than Verstappen.
But a statement from Honda Racing announced that Gasly had been ruled out of FP2 while an issue on his power unit was checked out.
“After FP1, we noticed something on the data from [Gasly]’s PU,” Honda tweeted. “Unfortunately, it will take some time to check, so he will not be taking part in FP2.”
It will be a blow to the Frenchman, especially with Friday running time reduced from 180 to 120 minutes this season – although Gasly will at least be cheered by his fine performance in the morning session. It leaves Yuki Tsunoda as the sole remaining AlphaTauri driver in the FP2 session in Austria.
