Hamilton admits: 'Crash was my fault'
Friday 4th April 2008

Lewis Hamilton has admitted he was to blame for the high-speed crash that curtailed his running during practice for the Bahrain GP.


Hamilton's McLaren skewed off the track after it climbed the kerbs on the exit of Turn Seven, and while he emerged unscathed, the same could not be said of his shattered car. The team now face a race against time to put it back together in time for Saturday's qualifying session.


Without quite going as far as to say that 'Yes, it was my mistake', Hamilton acknowledged he had been the cause of the crash. "It was a shame that I ended what had been a productive day going off the circuit and hitting the barriers at Turn Seven," he told reporters. "I was just pushing and sometimes these things happen. I am absolutely fine, and hopefully the damage to the car is not too bad.


"We would have had to change our engine and gearbox anyway so hopefully I am not going to be too unpopular with the boys in the garage."

If Hamilton does need to change the engine (unlikely) he will get a 10 place penalty
If he changes the gearbox he will be fine.
If he changes the gearbox tomorrow after FP3 he will get a 5 place penalty

If the engine is damaged, which is unlikely, then yes, obviously. If it isn't then no. Forget the gearbox. he wont get penalty for changing the gearbox.

No I remember Allen (not a great source :P) saying that they use a separate gearbox and engine on Fridays so he absolutely won't get a penalty.

As fair as I know the engine they use on friday is the same they will use on the race.
