Bruno Senna says Williams have enough spare parts to get him back on track on Saturday with the updated version of the car after a heavy crash during the second practice session.

The Brazilian lost the rear end of his Williams on turn in to the final chicane and slid into the infamous 'Wall of Champions.'

The impact severely damaged his car, including a new curved rear wing the British team were debuting.

"It was a big shunt," Senna told Sky Sports F1.

"Of course I was a bit frustrated; I never got a clear lap and pushed too hard. This is the 'Wall of Champions' for a reason; everybody seems to have an issue with that wall.

"Unfortunately it's a big shunt so there's a lot of damage to the car, but these guys are great; they're going to get it sort it and we're going to be back on track tomorrow.

"It was a very unfortunate crash where you crash with the rear first and then with the front but they have plenty of spares and we're going to be back in shape tomorrow. We do have another new rear wing to use."
