Daniel Juncadella has admitted that the crash he suffered during practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix was the 'strangest' of his career.

Juncadella replaced Sergio Perez in the opening 90 minute session but made a mistake at Turn 8 and hit the barriers.

His Force India did not sustain substantial exterior damage but some engine components internally had to be replaced, meaning that Perez was forced to sit out the second session as well.

"It’s always good to be back in the car, but it’s a shame to end the session with an accident," he said.

"It was the strangest crash I ever had and I was not expecting it at all. The track was evolving very quickly because there is new asphalt and there was only one racing line with grip.

"On that lap I went a bit wider on the kerb, which was a bit too optimistic because I had a moment and had to catch the car. There was no room in the run-off area so I damaged the front of the car. I’ve apologised to the team and I’m sorry that it caused Sergio to miss track time."
