|Sebastien Buemi||Jaime Alguersuari|

Blamed a lack of downforce for the STR5′s lack of pace, but out-qualified Alguersuari once again.
On race day Buemi joined Rubens Barrichello in voicing his displeasure with Michael Schumacher:
On the way down to the first corner Michael (Schumacher) pushed me over to the left side and I had to go on the brakes, or I would have gone off the track and I don’t think it was very fair on his part.
He lost three places at the start and ended the race out of the points.
Was this a cheeky joke from Alguersuari after qualifying?
We found a good set-up for Q1, but maybe I had a bit too much front wing in Q2 and the car was oversteering too much. My lap times were all similar and I think it was the best I could do today, even if I had expected a little bit more from the upgrades we had here. And just to make it clear, I was not held up by Schumacher.
But his race didn’t last long:
A very short race for me and I am not sure what the problem was, as I saw no alarms on my dash.
I felt that I was beginning to lose torque and power and the pit wall told me to stop the car at the side of the track. I saw a lot of smoke and I realised I was losing some fluid, so I tried to stay off the racing line so as not to cause problems for the others.
It was not the best way to celebrate the first anniversary of my Formula 1 debut.
