Di Grassi 23rd after engine problem

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

HRT out-qualified a rival team on merit for the first time at Istanbul this weekend – though it was partly thanks to Lucas di Grassi suffering a technical problem.

The Virgin driver revealed on Twitter he had “massive engine problems” during qualifying.

He lines up 23rd for tomorrow’s race behind Bruno Senna in one HRT and Karun Chandhok in the other.

Team mate Timo Glock starts 21st behind the two Lotuses.
