5 November 2010 – Renault has verified that a fault with the car’s rear wing caused the accident which saw Vitaly Petrov sustain a heavy impact in first practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
“We lost quite a lot of time this morning after my accident and that obviously had a knock-on effect this afternoon as well,” commented the frustrated Vyborg man.
“It’s been a difficult day for me but I have enjoyed driving this circuit, which gives the driver quite a lot of challenges. We need to work hard tonight to ensure that we can make up for the problems we had today.”
