Michael Schumacher simply explains his second practice crash was simply run out of track and he couldn’t stop the car anymore. He played down its consequence.
Seven times world champion posted tenth fastest lap-time in evening practice session ahead of his team-mate Nico Rosberg.
“I just ran out of road. I locked up and I couldn’t stop the car anymore,” said Schumacher, 10th quickest in the session. “I don’t think it was aquaplaning.
“It’s a bit strange, but nevertheless, you have to put a cross on it and forget about it,” added the Mercedes driver, who had also crashed during practice last weekend in Germany.
Schumacher added that Mercedes need rain hit race it’s a better chance to flourishing for his team.
“I think the rain might be an opportunity as we have seen at Silverstone, so let’s see what happens.”
Nico Rosberg was 11th quickest, and the German accepted his car was not as powerful as he was hoping ahead of the start of the weekend.
“It was a decent day of testing,” he said. “Not a very promising day for us. I expected to be stronger. We tried some major things, especially on my car but it didn’t really work out.”
