Sakon Yamamoto

Spun early in Q2, causing a session stoppage when he hit the barrier after turn 16. Qualified ahead of his team mate.

He went off during the safety car period but stayed in front of Senna. Slipped behind him through the pit stops and ended the race there, although he was catching his tyre-troubled team mate towards the end.

Bruno Senna

Broken suspension in first practice provoked a high-speed spin and meant he missed much the second session.

Went straight on at the first corner when the race had its proper start. He came in for intermediate tyres soon after – on lap 19, around ten laps earlier than most drivers – and nursed them to the end.

Matched the team’s best finish of the year, 14th, which together with Yamamoto in 15th gave them their best overall result of the season so far.
