To recover from aquaplaning
, ease gently off the accelerator, have a firm grip of the steering wheel and be sure not to make any sudden steering actions.
Driving through a puddle on the nearside and aquaplaning
on the nearside wheels could cause the car to veer into the kerb, she said.
One can't be sure how deep it might be, apart from the chance of aquaplaning
Talking of aquaplaning
, she said, "During heavy or persistent rain, water can pool even on a flat surface of a road causing the vehicle's tyres to lose traction and 'surf' on top of the layer of water and lead to a loss of steering control.
- a minute film of water between the tyre and the road - can still occur in certain circumstances, so beware because it wipes out your braking and steering.
There was a lot of aquaplaning
and we are doing 180mph there.
Heavy rainfall hampered Friday practice, but despite standing water and the risk of aquaplaning
Harris Racing Yamaha rider Jamie,23, completed 11 laps of the International Circuit with a best time of 2.
Button, widely regarded as one of the best drivers in the wet, revealed he had been scared by the track conditions as Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Bruno Senna of Williams crashed after aquaplaning
off the circuit.
You wouldn't want to be racing in those conditions, going wheel to wheel, because you can't see the aquaplaning
until you arrive.
Nico Hulkenberg said "A very limited programme today to avoid running on such a wet track with a high risk of aquaplaning
For example, in transport engineering, when the contact of the vehicle's wheels with the road is described, the term hydroplaning of the wheels, which is synonymous to aquaplaning
, is widely used (for example, the term hydroplaning is used when the interaction between airplane wheels and runways is investigated, while aquaplaning
is used when the interaction between the vehicle wheels and the road is investigated).
Drivers risked aquaplaning
off the circuit at the merest application of the throttle in yesterday's practice hour in which only two managed to set lap times, and Button felt there was only one course of action.

This reduces the potential for surface damage and wheel tracks which can cause aquaplaning
, and improves comfort for road users.
Additionally, the expanded range comes with improvements including lower fuel consumption by lower rolling resistance, shorter braking distance on wet road, stronger aquaplaning
protection and better snow grip.
