'Error Or damage' Didn't Make Me Crash - Räikkönen

Postby CrazyChick » Wed 12 Sep, 2007 1:03 pm

Kimi Räikkönen has continued to insist that a technical failure did not contribute to his high speed crash at Monza on Saturday.

The Finn's Ferrari speared sharply to the right under braking for the Ascari chicane at some 300kmh in the final practice session, leaving most commentators unanimous a mechanical problem was the only logical cause.

Maranello based engineers insisted, however, that Räikkönen's rear brakes had simply locked on a bump, and blamed neither a car fault or a driving error.

"The telemetry didn't give any hint of an error or damage, just like the analysis of the car in Maranello, as the technicians told me," Räikkönen, 28, said on Tuesday.

Kimi subsequently raced with a sore neck, and replays of Lewis Hamilton's overtaking manoeuvre late in the Italian grand prix show Räikkönen barely able to keep his head upright under braking.

With mere days until he will need to drive again at Spa-Francorchamps, he insisted: "I'm 100 percent fit in terms of physical fitness. After the race I took some painkillers and I relaxed a bit."

Well it has to be one or the other doesn't it really, the corner was the same every time, it's not like it was different that particular time he went around it... either the car was inadiquate that particular time around that corner, or kimi was...

Given Felipes car dying during the race with "a problem with the rear of the car", I'd say Kimi's accident was probably related to whatever took felipe out... but who knows...

OMG...if he was paraletic and then took some painkillers I am not surprised he became "relaxed" ;)

I bet you he would be a little more characterful in that senario too

paralytic :roll:

1. paraletic

This 'word' is derived from a widespread mispronunciation of the word 'paralytic' and means extremely drunk.
Although widely used this word does not exist in the written form.

We all had too much to drink at John's wedding and got absolutely 'paraletic'
