Sebastian Vettel says he was just trying too hard when driving his car before his crash in second practice in Abu Dhabi.
The Red Bull driver made contact with the wall at Turn 1 after losing the rear of his car at the first corner, damaging the front wing. Vettel managed to return to the track and finished as sixth fastest.
"I lost the car on the entrance," he explained. "I went a bit too wide and got too much on the curb and lost the rears, and couldn't catch the car. I was quite lucky to get the car out again at the end, so there was not much damage."
He added: "I think I was just too greedy, I wanted too much on the entrance. It just brushed it a little bit. If you go a bit beyond that there is dust on it, and there is less grip."
