Bruno Senna admitted that frustration got the better of him and caused him to crash during second practice in Canada.

With 40 minutes of the session still to run, Senna lost the rear end of the car in the final chicane to spin backwards in to the 'Wall of Champions'. His car was heavily damaged, but after returning to the pits Senna told Sky Sports that he had been pushing too hard having failed to get a clean run during the session.

"It was a big shunt," Senna said. "I was a bit frustrated, I got too much traffic on my laps - never got a clear lap - and then I pushed a bit too hard in the chicane. This is the wall of champions for a reason; everybody seems to have an issue with that wall. Unfortunately it's a big shunt so there's a lot of damage to the car, but these guys are great; they're going to get it sort it and we're going to be back on track tomorrow.

"There's plenty of damage - it's the front end of the car and the rear of the car. It was a very unfortunate crash where you crash with the rear first and then with the front but they have plenty of spares and we're going to be back in shape tomorrow."

When asked if the team had a spare version of the updated front wing, Senna replied: "We do, yeah."
