Unhappy Verstappen Hit by Brake Problems

Sunday June 10th, 2001

Jos Verstappen was bitterly disappointed after losing sixth place only four laps from the end of the Canadian Grand Prix when his Arrows suffered a brake failure.

The Dutchman took advantage of a good start and a light car to move up the field having qualified in 13th place on Saturday, before losing some time after missing the opportunity to pit while the safety car was on track.

But Verstappen benefited from the retirements to move into the points near the end of the race. However, a problem with the brakes of his Arrows sent him spinning off the track with only four laps left.

"I am very very disappointed," admitted Verstappen. " I got a great start and was up to seventh place by lap two. By the time the Safety Car came out I was up into a points-scoring position but I couldn't hear anything on the radio.

"I didn't hear the call to come in for a pit-stop so we lost the opportunity to pit during the Safety Car period. I was having a lot of problems with my brakes and that was what caused me to go off at the end. I'm unhappy as we lost points today."
