Christian Klien

Made an impressive return to F1 in place of the unwell Sakon Yamamoto.

He out-qualified Senna by over a second and the two lapped at a similar pace in the race, Klien usually ahead by a couple of tenths.

A hydraulic failure ended his race.

Despite his performance expect Yamamoto to be back in the car for his home race in two weeks’ time.

Bruno Senna

Despite several spins in practice and qualifying, Senna showed better pace in the race and was just five seconds behind his team mate at the halfway point.

But he could do nothing to avoid hitting Kamui Kobayashi’s crashed Sauber:

As soon as I came out of the corner and into the braking area the flags came out, but it was too late and there was no way to avoid the accident. The marshals were just too late and I didn?t have any notice of what was going on. It?s just one of those days.
