Giancarlo Fisichella will take no further part in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix after spinning out in torrential rain during Q1 at Interlagos.
The Ferrari driver caused the session to be red-flagged less than five minutes in, when he aquaplaned and lost control at the Senna S -- he was classified second fastest at the time.
"It's dangerous everywhere," the Italian veteran told BBC TV. "Even in the pitlane, so they need to do something.
"Then I had aquaplaning and I spun in the slow-speed corners. Then the anti-stall didn't work again and that was it."
Fisichella's car was undamaged, but became stranded in the middle of the track. Regulations state that drivers are not allowed to take any further part in qualifying in such a situation.
