Delivered on the car’s potential, starting and finishing sixth. Kept Mark Webber behind with little difficulty in the middle of the race.
Ran well in practice but was visibly furious in qualifying after being knocked out in Q2. A gearbox change penalty left him 17th.
Pitted on lap three and barged past Vitaly Petrov on lap seven. But both ran wide at Memorial corner allowing Sutil past the pair of them.
He made it to the end without a further stop for tyres but couldn’t keep the recovering Robert Kubica on newer tyres behind him.
After the race he was given a 20-second penalty for cutting turn two on the first lap, passing Vitantonio Liuzzi’s Force India.
