Trulli: Just one of those things

Sunday 16-May-2010 16:50

Jarno Trulli says his accident with Karun Chandhok, which left his Lotus parked on top of the Hispania driver, was just a "racing incident."

And although it was, it was a rather spectacular one.

Three laps from the end of another slow and difficult grand prix in Monaco, Trulli tried to overtake Chandhok in a bid to finish second from last.

However, the move did not go according to plan and instead of passing the Indian driver, he parked on him.

"This wasn't a great weekend for me," said Trulli.

"After we had a problem with the wheelgun in the pitstop I was stuck behind the HRTs and trying to find room to overtake - in the last lap Karun seemed slow through the second and third sector, and I'd seen he was leaving room at Rascasse, so I tried to get through but we touched and that was that - the end of the race.

"It was one of those things - a racing incident, but I still feel like we're going in the right direction as a team, and I want to put the bad luck behind me when we get back on track in Turkey."
