Another weekend to forget for Williams who failed to score in Shanghai.
|Rubens Barrichello||Nico H?‚??lkenberg|
|Qualifying time comparison (Q2)||1’35.748 (-0.899)||1’36.647|
|Average race lap||1’55.461 (-2.385)||1’57.846|
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.
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.
