The German Grand Prix went lights out a bit earlier than expected when a bus crashed into the start lights at Hockenheim on Thursday.

Perhaps an ominous sign for the race’s future, a bus driver did not adhere to the caution sign and smashed into the lights.

The good news is there were spares on hand so the lights were repaired in short order.

Sunday’s German GP, which could be the last for a few years given the circuit’s financial situation, gets underway on Sunday at 3:10pm local time.
