|Adrian Sutil||Vitantonio Liuzzi|
|Qualifying time comparison (Q1)||1’36.671 (-0.49)||1’37.161|
|Average race lap||1’55.447|
Qualified tenth for the third time in 2010 and kept up his perfect record against his team mate.
Dropped back at the start and switched to intermediate tyres at the end of the first lap. This actually worked out quite well for him, bringing him up to fifth before his second pit stop and he got back up to seventh soon after it, which is why the likes of Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton had to fight their way past him.
Fell out of the top ten at the end of the race but was closing in very quickly on tenth-placed Michael Schumacher as the race ended.
Half a second slower than Sutil in qualifying, he was eliminated in Q1, blaming traffic.
Gained three places at the start but lost control of his car braking for turn six and spun into the field, crashing heavily into Sebastien Buemi. Liuzzi said afterwards he’d struggled to get his brakes up to temperature on the formation lap.
