Jarno Trulli

Took ‘new team pole’ once again, 1.3 seconds behind Vitantonio Liuzzi’s Force India.

Started the race on the hard compounds tyre but we never got to see how his strategy would have played out as he retired with hydraulic failure.

Heikki Kovalainen

Started on the soft tyres and passed his team mate on lap 13, but hydraulic failure ended his race as well:

I lost power steering in turn eight and it looks like it was a hydraulics failure. At first I thought I had a puncture as the steering suddenly felt really strange, but then I lost the gearbox, the clutch, and throttle. It?s so unfortunate as this was our strongest race so far.
