Sutil made contact with Rubens Barrichello at the start and had to pit for a new front wing.
He made his way back up through the field but finished out of the points in 11th.
Paul di Resta
Di Resta out-qualified Sutil for the second race in a row. He ran a three-stop race and briefly held ninth towards the end but couldn’t keep Michael Schumacher behind, as he explained:
“I just could not hold off Michael at the end, he had fresher tyres and we had to stop a bit earlier for my third stop than predicted. But I also did not want to risk the championship point as well.”
