Shakedown will not be scored, and will instead be a round of safety checks and inspections, followed by a round of on-track challenges to give the teams a chance to test their vehicles and help them get ready for the Knockout Qualifying stage that will follow.
The teams are geared up and ready to go, and have been raising the hoods on their cars for technical inspections in the garage all morning. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be on the front lines of the next generation in automotive technology, check out the media below. This is the future of our cars.
