Jarno Trulli

Felt he wasn’t able to extract the maximum from the car in qualifying:

It?s a bit disappointing today. I was going well on the first run but I was held by the traffic in the last sector and lost about 4/10ths, so we had to abort that lap ?ǣ it?s a shame as that was looking like pretty good. On the second run the tyres didn?t work as well as we?d hoped and that cost me a lot of time.
Jarno Trulli

Lotus didn’t pit him during the safety car – he was brought in on lap 20 instead. That dropped him behind his team mate, where he stayed until the end.

Heikki Kovalainen

Finished a quiet 14th, gaining a place off his team mate who did not pit during the safety car.
