This unusual crash took place as the cars were heading onto the grid. Michael Schumacher exited the pit lane and Christijan Albers followed him out. However, Schumacher was going particularly slowly and trying to warm up his tires. Albers on the other hand was running fairly quickly. Then it happened, a speeding Albers speared into the back of the Ferrari and climbed over it. The accident badly damaged both cars. So they both had to use the spare cars as there wasn’t enough time for repairs.
