Felipe Massa described his run of crashes in the last two grands prix as being akin to a movie storyline, as an accident in Canadian Grand Prix qualifying dropped him to 16th on the grid.
The Montreal incident followed two shunts in Monaco - one in practice and one in the race - at the same corner. While the first was a driver error, the second was caused by a suspension problem.
Massa readily owned up to being at fault in his crash at Montreal's Turn 3 during Q2.
"I think when I braked I just lost the rear wheels and went sideways. People told me I braked over the white line. It is possible," he said.
"It's a shame, I'm really disappointed about what happened. It's like a movie: three things happening in a line like that.
"Physically, I'm fine. This crash was nothing compared to Monaco. The crash I had here is more a psychological thing than a physical one."
The Brazilian was visibly frustrated by the accident at the time, banging his Ferrari's steering wheel in exasperation after the impact with the tyre wall.
But Massa said he was determined not to dwell on his mistake.
"We need to concentrate on tomorrow," eh said. "You don't win anything by looking to the past, you have to look to the present and to the future. That's the way we need to work.
"It's true that it's not nice to start at the back, but it's also true that this is a track where every year things happen in the race."
