Formula One: Crash, bang in Brazil on just first lap

Formula One: Crash, bang in Brazil on just first lap”

The Kannapolis based Haas F1 Team endured a hard Brazilian Grand Prix with drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen finishing 15th and 20th, respectively, in the penultimate round of the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Ricciardo had not finished a race since his third place in Japan in early October after engine problems in subsequent United States and Mexico grands prix.

But the Red Bull star's efforts to make up places early on lap one nearly backfired when was involved in a three-way collision on the second turn, which took Kevin Magnussen (Haas) and Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren-Honda) out of the race.

Ricciardo was bumped in the rear, causing him to spin across the bows of both cars, by Vandoorne, who had collided with the front left of Magnussen.

Ricciardo added: "Into Turn 2 I knew it was going to be tight, but I thought it was a good chance from the start to overtake a bunch of cars, so I tried the outside - I was holding on, holding on, and then I felt a hit".

"Fortunately we didn't have damage so we were able to come through the field, not as quickly as Lewis but relatively for our pace". Getting a penalty on top of that - I'm not super happy with it. The positive from the race is that the last stint on the supersoft, the vehicle felt fantastic. Instead, the Dane says that he will study his accident to make sure that he will not be involved in a similar accident in the future.

"From my side, we were three-wide through the corner", said Magnussen.

"There was contact with Vandoorne who then had contact with Ricciardo".

"If I'd realized earlier that Ricciardo was on the outside of Vandoorne, then perhaps I'd have given more room, but by the time I saw Ricciardo it was too late. I'd already carried the speed".

"Daniel drove a very strong race as usual, made some great passing moves on the brakes from far back into turn one and finished in P6 which today was probably the optimum", Horner said.
