"That was a total mess, and it was my fault.  I went off on my first lap,
and I went off on my last lap.  I apologize to the guys, but we were just
trying to do our best in not-so-good conditions.  But it was the same for
everybody.  It was a matter of staying on the track and staying out of
trouble.  The same will be the case tomorrow if the weather continues to do
what it's been doing."
