The Briton is in the gravel at Dry Sack - from the tyre marks, looks like he's locked up and ploughed straight through the gravel.

He has gone straight into the tyres so hopefully it is just nose damage.

You can tell from the tyre tracks the car bounced back off the barrier. So front wing/nose is gone for sure.... just wonder about front suspention.

If i was schumacher i'd be at home doing whatever i wanted with my fortune

I think someone needs to add a bit more gravel, or at least loosen up the stuff there, it looks like it just acted as a less than effective road

Lewis' Merc back in the garage after his small crash.. Minus a front wing, plus some gravel. Not the best test so far..

Lotus looks really good. Solid on both days and I can't wait to see how Kimi fares tomorrow.

Go Grosjean, go Grosjean, WDC for Grosjean!

*I knowwww, it's only testing, I'm just showing my support.

Seems Hamilton wanted to get his first crashed in early then, get them out of the way for the season.

STR also looking good. I wonder what they're testing this morning, most of their runs have been up there in pace with the occasional slow lap for whatever purpose or reason

Agreed...probably the most consistently quick team so far today. I wonder what tyres they are using

Here’s Ted with more on Hamilton’s accident: “I’m just back from the garage, where they were attracting attention of the wrong sorts. There’s not too much damage: the front wing snapped off at the nose pillars and the car had picked up a fair bit of gravel. But both front wheels were still attached to the car. That’s damage that can be repaired fairly quickly, but obviously Mercedes will want to know the cause. The one thing we do know is that the car didn’t make the corner, so was it brake failure? It seems unlikely as there were skid marks on the track, but we don’t know if they only came from the front or the rear, so there could have been a mechanical problem. If not, could it have been that Lewis was caught out by the braking characteristics of his new car? Maybe the rear locked up; maybe it was a KERS charging quirk and he got less engine braking than the previous lap. We’ll let you know as soon as the team confirm. It’s all part of learning about a new car in testing.”


No major damage it seems.
