Karun Chandhok

Chandhok struggled in the mixed conditions at the start and end of the race where he lost a huge amount of time to his team mate, going off the track more than once.

He started his race from the pit lane due to a hydraulic change on his car. At the chequered flag he was three minutes (over two laps) behind his team mate, despite only spending 20 seconds longer in the pits.

Bruno Senna

Beat Chandhok by a tenth of a second in qualifying but the margin was much bigger in the race. Felt his visor was too dark for the conditions.
