Point lost on last lap (STR race review)

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

Jaime Alguersuari came close to end a point-less streak that stretched back to the Spanish Grand Prix.

Team mate Sebastien Buemi endured a messy race and eventually picked up a penalty for crashing into Timo Glock.

Sebastien Buemi

Buemi hit two drivers within three laps after taking on intermediates on lap 19.

Contact with Heikki Kovalainen was more of a setback for the Lotus that the Toro Rosso.

But two laps later Buemi lost control of his car at turn three and took out Timo Glock. The stewards handed him a five-place grid penalty for the next race.

Jaime Alguersuari

Impressively out-qualified his team mate by three-quarters of a second. Unlike Buemi he didn’t make an early pit stop for intermediate tyres so he gained places off the Sauber drivers but fell back behind them later on.

Started the last lap in tenth place but couldn’t hold back the recovering Nico H???lkenberg who had much fresher tyres on.
