Alexander Albon has topped the opening practice session of the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend, however his session ended in the barriers.
The session started under very wet conditions, with teams tentative on sending their drivers out into the wet conditions. However, the water was quick to move off the racing line, with drivers switching to the intermediate tyres.
In the final moments of the session, drivers took to the circuit on slick tyres, which saw both Red Bulls spin off the track.
While Max Verstappen managed to avoid the barriers, Albon slid off the circuit and hit the wall at the final corner.
The two-by-twos followed into eighth and ninth and Pierre Gasly as Daniil Kvyat occupied the positions for Toro Rosso. Kvyat's session also ended in a spin, however he managed to keep it out of the walls.
Four drivers didn't set a lap time during the session, including the recently crowned 2019 champion Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen.
Despite the wet conditions that overshadowed the opening practice session, Saturday and Sunday are expected to be dry.
