Senna has another new wing after crash
8 June 2012 – Bruno Senna caused a crowd reaction as he crashed his Williams in dramatic fashion during Friday’s second Montreal practice session. However, the Brazilian does have another brand-new rear wing at his disposal heading into the weekend.
First run by Pastor Maldonado in the opening 90-minute period, the new rear wing features a notable curve and is hoped to generate a greater DRS effect. Just minutes after fitting his own version in Practice 2, Senna destroyed his car at the final chicane.
“It was a big shunt,” he told Sky Sports. “Of course I was a bit frustrated; I never got a clear lap and pushed too hard. This is the ‘Wall of Champions’ for a good reason and unfortunately it was a bit shunt, but these guys are great and we will be back on the track tomorrow.
“There is plenty of damage - the front and rear end of the car, which was very unfortunate - but we have plenty of spares and we’ll be back tomorrow. We do have another new rear wing to use.”
Ayrton Senna, late uncle of Bruno, won twice at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve - for McLaren - in two of his three title seasons: 1988 and 1990.
