Glock had to use a new chassis after his Friday crash. He was given a grid penalty for impeding Jarno Trulli during qualifying which left him 20th.
While swerving to avoid the Barrichello/Alonso crash on lap one he went through the 50 metre marker board at the chicane and broke his front wing. He pitted for a new one but had to revert to the previous specification having broken two of them.
A late gamble to run on wet weather tyres might have yielded more had the safety car not come out.
Lucas di Grassi
Tangled with Jarno Trulli during qualifying and started 22nd.
He had a decent race, one of few drivers to make just a single pit stop, and came home Heikki Kovalainen. But he felt the Lotus driver should have had a penalty:
From my point of view it is very clear that Kovalainen cut the chicane at turn five and we have brought this to the attention of the race officials.
Lucas di Grassi
The stewards have not commented on the matter.
