|Nick Heidfeld||Kamui Kobayashi|
|Qualifying time comparison (Q2)||1’48.557 (+0.958)||1’47.599|
|Average race lap||2’00.934 (+2.534)||1’58.401|
Matched his team mate’s pace in final practice but couldn’t repeat the feat in qualifying, lapping almost a second slower than Kobayashi.
He started 15th and collided with Vitantonio Liuzzi in the first lap, requiring a pit stop for a new front wing.
His second, terminal collision was with former Mercedes team mate Michael Schumacher, who Heidfeld blamed for the crash:
In my view, Michael was braking a bit too late and knocked me out of the race.
Started in the top ten for the first time since Istanbul and ran ninth after staying out during the first safety car period.
He made a mistake at turn three on lap seven, which allowed Mark Webber to pass him.
After that he caught Schumacher and sprang a surprise attack on the Mercedes driver, knocking him off the track as he passed.
The stewards were unconcerned about the move but Kobayashi’s race didn’t last much longer as he crashed into the barrier at turn 18 shortly afterwards.
