Haas’ Nikita Mazepin endured a troublesome debut in Bahrain with two spins in qualifying before he crashed out just three corners into the race.
His woes continued in the hour-long opening practice session at Imola.
Mazepin spun into the gravel exiting Rivazza 2 early on in the session and then came to grief at the same corner just as the chequered flag was flown.
Mazepin made contact with the outside wall, causing damage to the Haas VF-21, which came to a halt just shy of the pit lane entry.
Williams’ Nicholas Latifi slid off the Imola track and into the gravel during first practice for the 2021 Formula 1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
