Schumacher laments aquaplaning

By on Friday, August 31, 2012

Michael Schumacher was one of the first drivers to venture out onto the track during second practice, but even he was thwarted by the amount of rain falling at the Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium this afternoon.

"Unfortunately the weather today did not allow us to do much more than just basic work as there was too much rain coming down in both sessions", said Schumacher. "There was a lot of aquaplaning, even when just cautiously cruising around the circuit which sometimes you did not see or expect at all, so proper driving was not possible. But we have a lot of basic data from Spa and we know what to expect."

Team mate Nico Rosberg was the first to head out on track in the afternoon and was eager to learn as much as possible.

"We collected some data for the starts, balance and tyre temperatures as you can always learn something in the rain."
