Kamui Kobayashi’s bid to return to Formula 1 suffered a bit of a blow after the Japanese driver crashed his Ferrari during the Moscow City Racing event in the streets of the Russian capital on Sunday.

Held in poor weather, “with rain falling on and off throughout the day, sometimes quite heavily,” according to the Ferrari website, Kobayashi was caught out in the tricky conditions and ended up in the barriers.

The track was “particularly slippery as the rain came down hard at that moment” with the F60, the 2009 F1 car, consequently badly damaged during the promotional event.

“The track was very slippery and there was a marked bump at that point, which is why I hit the barrier,” explained Kobayashi, who drives for Ferrari in the World Endurance Championship’s GT class.

The 26-year-old, who drove for Sauber in the last three seasons, is hoping to return to F1 next year.

“At the moment, there are many teams who prefer to choose their drivers based on how much money they can bring, rather than on their ability on track: I hope this trend will change, because my aim is to be back there as soon as possible and I am working hard to succeed,” he said.
