Regarding the accident in the tenth rotation, the Dane said: “I have locked up the rear brake. It would have been to use the handbrake on a road car. As a result, I lost control and crashed into the wall, slightly damaging the front wing. Nothing terrible happened, just have to deal with the brakes and the brake balance. In the morning we got some useful information about that.
Fortunately, no other damage to the machine is not got.”

Now the priority is to drive more miles and make sure everything is working properly”.
