Jarno Trulli said after the Canadian grand prix that Robert Kubica’s crash was caused by the BMW driver hitting him from behind.
Poland’s Kubica was lucky to survive the horror 280kph accident at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, with television replays showing that he made contact with Trulli’s Toyota prior to spearing off at full speed.
“I had not moved from my line but when I saw the car roll over I was very concerned,” the Italian explained.
“When you see another colleague have such a big crash and you are hit from the back it’s not a nice feeling.”
Trulli retired from the race with his own crash.
