The Scot told Autosport: "I didn't have vision of the apex of turn four, I think there were a few passing manoeuvres going on in front.
"Everything slowed and I tried to take avoiding action but unfortunately locked a wheel. I tried to go for the gap between them but unfortunately tore the front end off the car.
"Not the best but with everything that happened yesterday with the brake failure, we'll try to forget about the weekend."
