    Ouch! A 204mph spin...

    ...produces knackered wheels!



    ...which were on this car at the time.



    Apart from some rubber on the front wing, it seemed to escape unscathed, luckily.

    Very nice components underneath!

    ...going TOO fast and applying the brakes. They are fairly big and 'grabbed' at high speed, locking the wheel.
