Jordan rookie Takuma Sato says he is not worried about his growing list of accidents.
The racer has been involved in shunts four times in the last fortnight alone, and hit his own team mate Giancarlo Fisichella in the Malaysian Grand Prix.
But he says he is not worried as long as he does not make the same mistake twice.
Sato produced the most dramatic accident of Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix when he moved off the racing line in the tunnel to make way for Fisichella and lost control of his car at 160mph.
His car hammered the barrier and then skidded on its belly for over 100 yards, veering so wildly across the track he almost hit Fisichella for the second time in five races.
"I am totally okay after the accident," said Sato. "I was ahead of Giancarlo at that stage and he was slightly quicker than me so the team asked me on the radio to let him through.
"I was trying to let him through but I wasn't expecting so much dust. I lost all the grip and hit the barrier.
"I am trying all the time and each time I've gone off it has been a different thing that happens - which I am okay with. If you never do the same mistake twice then you are okay.
"It was a very exciting day for me and I am generally happy for the Jordan team to get another result.
"My start was okay. I saw a little space on the outside and went for it - overtaking five cars. After that I was pleased I could follow Giancarlo at a very similar pace and it was very, very good for him.
"Then he had a problem at the chicane and I got ahead of him. Then I got Mika Salo at Mirabeau which was very exciting.
"Then the team radioed to me to move over and that was disappointing because I think I could have finished very near Giancarlo."
The Japanese driver is yet to score his first Formula One™ points, is unclassified in five of the first seven races and finished ninth twice.
"I'm not losing confidence at all," he insisted after seeing his team mate get in the points for the second race in succession. "I am very optimistic for everything even though I have had such a hard time.
"Obviously I keep on trying and then one day hopefully it will come right and I will get the results. That is what I am hoping. I am so happy with this team, too, because everybody supports me. I've had some moments to show what I can do.
"But I am disappointed and have mixed emotions about what happened in Monaco but at least we got the result. It was a tough lesson for me to learn because I have very little experience of street circuits.
"There is practically nowhere you can let someone past early and when I did I paid the price. But at least I have learned something again."
