Some days, nothing goes right.
You line up in the wrong grid spot after the formation lap, delay the race start, turn off your engine, start from the pitlane, pick up a puncture and a drive-though penalty, and then retire off the back of bizarre telemetry and a possibly over-heating engine.
It's almost worth moving to Australia.
Michael Schumacher's Hungarian Grand Prix was awful from start to finish. Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong - it was a catalogue of errors par excellence.
Making things worse for the Mercedes driver, the unlucky chain of events that eventually led to his retirement all stemmed from his own original error - lining up in the wrong grid slot after the initial formation lap.
"Today was obviously one of those races that you will not look back at for very long," Schumacher said in the Budapest paddock.
"After I had started from the pit lane, I picked up a penalty and then a puncture. So all in all, the beginning of the race was not very pleasant for us. Everything you do not need came together.
"We did not have full telemetry before the start and during the period of overheating, and this is why we finally decided to retire so as not risk any damage which might make us suffer in the next race.
"This weekend is not one to remember, but then there are weekends like this which you can only accept. I am sure we will be looking much better in the next races to come."
