Rubens Barrichello

Nearly made it into Q3 at the expense of Michael Schumacher, Barrichello missed the cut by hundredths of a second.

But poor strategy put paid to any hopes of a points finish on race day.

Nico H???lkenberg

Qualified a long way behind his team mate and his race went to pot with a series of bad calls.

But the lap time chart shows some cause for optimism – his race pace compared well with Barrichello’s and his best lap was one second faster than his team mate’s.
