Haas facing ‘challenge’ to get Nico Hulkenberg’s car ready for qualifying

Nico Hulkenberg’s practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix was cut short due to an engine failure in his Haas VF-23, forcing the team to replace his internal combustion unit ahead of Saturday’s sessions.

During FP2, Hulkenberg’s car came to a halt with smoke emanating from the engine, bringing an abrupt end to his running. The setback came after a disrupted FP1 session, which was red-flagged due to a CCTV issue shortly after its start. As a result, Hulkenberg finds himself with limited valuable track time heading into the crucial stages of the weekend.
