McPhee crashes out in Ger­man Grand Prix

The Oban Times - - Sport -

CON­NEL’S John McPhee had a dif­fi­cult end to the Ger­man Grand Prix, crash­ing out of con­tention af­ter a promis­ing qual­i­fy­ing in the top 10 on Satur­day.

Af­ter a solid start, he dropped back be­fore the fall – un­able to get back into the race and fo­cus im­me­di­ately switch­ing to the Czech Grand Prix in Brno af­ter rear grip is­sues.

The Czech GP gets un­der way on Au­gust 4, and McPhee will be recharged and raring to go af­ter the sum­mer break.

John said: ‘I’m dis­ap­pointed with the crash but I knew from the first laps that I had rear grip is­sues.

‘All week­end I’ve been do­ing con­sis­tently de­cent laps on the hard tyre so I’m not sure why it was so bad to­day.

‘It’s cer­tainly not the way I wanted to go into the sum­mer break but I will come back stronger and even more de­ter­mined.’

John McPhee.
