"That was a total mess, and it was my fault. I went off on my first lap, and I went off on my last lap. I apologize to the guys, but we were just trying to do our best in not-so-good conditions. But it was the same for everybody. It was a matter of staying on the track and staying out of trouble. The same will be the case tomorrow if the weather continues to do what it's been doing."
