Kimi’s big crash

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Kimi Raikko­nen reck­ons there was noth­ing he could do to pre­vent his fright­en­ing exit from the Brazil­ian GP. The Finn lost con­trol of his Fer­rari shortly af­ter a race restart, slid­ing across the main straight with cars scat­ter­ing to avoid him as he ploughed into the pit­wall. Raikko­nen said: “It wasn’t rain­ing heav­ily, it was just easy to get aqua­plan­ing. The minute you get patches of stand­ing wa­ter you are just go­ing to aqua­plane. Once you hit those patches, there is zero you can do. I spun, al­most got it back, but went off in a very bad place. For­tu­nately no­body hit me.”
