A potential double points finish was lost when Vitaly Petrov collided with Fernando Alonso late in the race.
But the team showed good pace and Robert Kubica beat both the Ferraris.
|Robert Kubica||Vitaly Petrov|
|Qualifying time comparison (Q3)||1’27.039 (-0.391)||1’27.430|
|Average race lap||1’32.421 (-1.718)||1’34.140|
A solid but unspectacular race in which he tried but couldn’t find a way past the Mercedes drivers:
I knew we had a chance to get ahead of them during the pit stops and I had a very good out lap, but their pit stops must have been a bit quicker and so we couldn’t jump ahead.
Had his best qualifying performance of the year so far, getting within half a second of his team mate.
Came under huge pressure from Fernando Alonso, spending much of the race with the Ferrari less than a second behind.
He finally succumbed with six laps to go and the contact caused a puncture. That dropped him out of the points but the late tyre change allowed him to set the fastest lap of the race.
