Frentzen Continues with Troubled Season

Friday June 8th, 2001

Heinz-Harald FrentzenHeinz-Harald Frentzen continued with his dismal season on Friday, when he crashed his Jordan heavily against the tyre barriers during the final moments of practice for the Canadian Grand Prix.

"It felt like I came on some dirt in the braking area which had been put on the track by someone going off in front of me," said Frentzen.

"I wasn't going flat out or braking that hard, but it was enough to cause me to lose the rear of the car and spin off. I went backwards pretty fast. There was a big bang, but I'm okay."

The German driver, who has scored six points so far this season, was again outperformed by his Italian teammate Jarno Trulli, who set the eighth fastest time today and expects a tough race following some problems with their Bridgestone tyres.

"The session was pretty good," said Trulli. "We learned quite a bit but we are struggling to be quick in race conditions. We are having a few problems with the tyres blistering at the moment. I think we will be quick in qualifying but the signs so far are that it will be much harder in the race."
