Team Lotus: Karun Chandhok Crashes in FP1 Australian Grand Prix + Pictures

Yesterday was the beginning of the 2011 Formula 1 season. Free Practice 1 and 2 was hosted yesterday and pretty straight forward, with the exception of  Team Lotus reserve driver- Karun Chandhok crashing the team’s T128 on turn three of his first lap out. 

The team reported that there was nothing technically wrong with the car, and that the error was entirely his fault. Just going to fast for the slippery conditions.  See the video below.

However, the rest of the outing wasn’t horrible for Team Lotus for the first two practices of the F1 Season. Jarno and Heikki seemed to be able to keep the cars on the track for the most part.  See the pictures below for some samples of Team Lotus during FP1 and FP2 in Austrialia.
