Fortunately, the video cut just before he hit the ground fully, and he emerged from the mishap without any injuries.

The slip was not the only mishap Stroll encountered that day. 

Earlier in the sprint shootout, he experienced a crash that proved costly for both him and his team. 

Taking a gamble with slick tires in an effort to reach SQ3, Stroll slid wide at the corner with no name, colliding with the barriers.

The incident brought the session to an early stop and dashed the hopes of his Aston Martin teammate, Fernando Alonso, from advancing as well.

Stroll’s challenging day was part of a series of unfortunate events for the Aston Martin team. 

Alonso also faced a crash during the sprint race, further adding to the team’s woes.

Reflecting on the incidents, Lance Stroll admitted, “It was definitely not the Saturday we had hoped for. 

“The crash during the sprint race was a setback, and I apologise to the team for that. 

“We were aiming for better results, but it just wasn’t our day.”

Mike Krack, the team principal of Aston Martin, expressed his disappointment with the outcomes, saying, “It was a tough day for the team.
