Crashes everywhere in Spain
IT has been a destructive couple of days in Formula 1 circles with David Coulthard rolling a McLaren on Friday in Barcelona and Heinz-Harald Frentzen having two high-speed rear wing failures with his Arrows in Valencia on Saturday. Coulthard suffered a rear puncture and the car rolled as it went through the gravel trap (rather like Michael Schumacher's crash in Melbourne last year) and ended up back on its wheels. While Frentzen managed to avoid the barriers in his first shunt but hit them hard in the second. Neither driver was hurt.
