Sebastien Buemi

Remained 16th at the start and kept pace with Nick Heidfeld, following the Renault driver’s first pit stop and moving up to 11th.

Pastor Maldonado’s retirement promoted him to tenth for a single point.

Jaime Alguersuari

Failed to progress through Q1 after running into the back of Kamui Kobayashi at Rascasse.

Started on softs and spent 24 laps stuck behind Jarno Trulli until the Lotus driver pitted. Alguersuari’s first pit stop got him ahead, but he spent much of the next stint stuck behind Rubens Barrichello.

He switched to super-soft tyres at his second stop on lap 56. But he ran into the back of Lewis Hamilton’s car as the McLaren driver tried to avoid Adrian Sutil’s Force India, ending his race.

Alguersuari is yet to score a point this year, and Toro Rosso’s post-race press release drew attention to reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo’s second consecutive win in the Formula Renault 3.5 support race at Monaco.
