Bad luck strikes again

The big story of today was the catastrophe at the beginning of the first lap. Lopez who missed his start, tried to pass Van Lagen on the outside on corner 1 and crashed into the safety barrier after he had put a wheel on the dirty part of the track. At the same time, Jani made contact with other cars and was shunted down to 14th position; all this happened at the first corner.

Rojas was the only Dams driver to profit from the accident as he started well. However he had dropped back to 11th by the end of the race after coming off the track. Jani did well to battle back up to 8th place but the mishap at the first corner cost him any chance of challenging the leaders.

In a few seconds Jani lost his chance to win the championship even though he has proved his high level of performance once again.
