Four times German Grand Prix winner Michael Schumacher admitted that he was not fully focused when he crashed in Turn 7 at Hockenheim second practice.
After the heavy rain most drivers tried to improvement in difficult wet track. The home boy Schumacher lost control of his car at the fast right-hander into the stadium section. Mercedes W03 in a spin and hit the barrier with the nose of his car and, as it continued spinning, hit it again with the rear.
Seven times world champion majorly missed the best of the dry practice, came to a halt on the grass while the session was red flagged.
“Basically I was not fully concentrated,” Schumi admitted. I was on the radio and I was doing some other changes to the car, and touched the white line. That’s it.
“Cosmetically it looks almost all four corners touched on the barriers, so that’s not the nicest way, but the impact wasn’t too big.”
“It didn’t help us a lot, conditions, being so inconsistent, I don’t think we learned a great deal. It is what it is, so you’ve got to the best out of it.
“Nevertheless we’ve got to qualify probably in wet conditions, so that’s why it’s good sense to be out today and try the car and get the set-up right and so on. But it’s a guess work for Sunday.
“It’s okay. Any time we’ve been out, we’ve been top end.”
