Timo Glock

Like his team mate, Glock didn’t pit for tyres during the safety car period but had to bring his pit stop forward after a heavy lock-up.

His attempt to re-pass Bruno Senna resulted in a punctured right-rear tyre and a very slow pit stop as the team weren’t ready for him when he came in.

Glock passed Karun Chandhok in the last sector of the last lap but had 20 seconds added to his race time for failing to respond to blue flags.

    Looks like the team and especially Di Grassi is getting to grips with setting the car up and actually race with it. Good to see, i hope for some kind of battle for 10th place between those new teams, don’t let Lotus get to far ahead!
