Unpleasant conditions during FP1 on Phillip Island
That the Grand Prix at Phillip Island would take place in Australian Spring was well known, but that the conditions would be so unpleasant and cold this time around nobody really expected last week when it was 35Â°C in Malaysia. Also Marcel SchrÃ¶tter has to get used to the tough conditions at Phillip Island and this afternoon during the first free practice of the 125cc class he crashed. The session was strongly influenced by the strong wind and the rain, that was holding on the whole day already and its start was delayed by two hours. Why SchrÃ¶tter had crashed he is not really sure about himself, just the conditions were not what he was expecting and he simply slipped away on the watery and gripless racetrack. SchrÃ¶tter hopes for better conditions for tomorrow's second free practice.
"It doesn't make much sense to go out there today. It is raining, the track is wet and it is very cold. Why I have crashed I can't really tell, I think I simply slipped as there is not much grip in the wet out there. I hope that the weather will improve for tomorrow as this is no fun at all."
