Buemi, the only rookie in the field, began the weekend well by out-qualifying team mate Sebastien Bourdais.
He avoided the opening lap fracas, ran as high as fourth, and was never headed by Bourdais all race long. You can’t ask much more of a rookie on their debut than that.
He is the 69th driver to score a point on his debut, joining current drivers Sebastien Bourdais, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Rosberg, Timo Glock and Mark Webber.
