Rubens Barrichello

Barrichello blamed his poor start on a clutch problem – not unlike what happened to him at the track last year:

I had a problem with the clutch at the start which is a shame because it?s been fine all weekend so we will have to investigate that. We pitted earlier than we had originally planned because our pace was better than the cars in front. Our stop was quite slow because we had a problem with the front wheel. Later on, I then had an issue with the throttle. Our overall race pace wasn?t too bad but we need to resolve these issues that we are having.
Rubens Barrichello

Illustrating the depth of Williams’ problems, Barrichello was the last car on the road that wasn’t one of the new teams or had been involved in a first-lap crash.

Nico H???lkenberg

Collided with another driver – Sebastien Buemi – on the first lap for the second race in a row.

That left him enduring a lonely race until Buemi caught him late in the race, finally passing the Williams four laps from home.
