Sebastien Buemi

As seems to happen so often with Buemi, he made contact with another car on the opening lap. Suspecting front wing damage, the team changed his wing when he pitted during the first safety car period.

Extra pit stops were needed to pressurise the car’s hydraulics and after hit third visit to the pits he made contact with Heikki Kovalainen while passing the Lotus:

I am disappointed because I think that, without the difficulties I had, tenth place should have been within my grasp. However, generally the car has improved which is encouraging for the next race.

Jaime Alguersuari

Alguersuari matched his best ever qualifying position of 11th but a water leak meant he had to start from the pit lane.

He pitted during the first safety car period as well but, like his team mate, had to make two further visits to the pits which left him 12th.
