Sebastian Vettel will not run again during Friday practice for the Spanish Grand Prix after stopping on track in the first session.

Having completed just four laps during FP1, Vettel stopped after Turn 5 with an electrical issue and was seen using a fire extinguisher on the rear of the car. While that prevented him from running again in morning practice, the team has now confirmed that the problem is serious enough to stop Vettel making it back out at all for FP2.

"Due to an electrical problem that has damaged the wiring loom of Car No.1, Sebastian will not be able to take part in FP2," Red Bull wrote on Twitter. "The team will use the time to fix it to be ready for FP3 tomorrow."
