Virgin drivers’ lap times throughout the race (in seconds):
Glock wasn’t able to beat the Lotuses in qualifying but was thrilled with his effort: “That was one of the best qualifying laps I?óÔé¼Ôäóve ever driven here at Monaco.
“I put everything into it. A couple of times I just brushed the wall and had a couple of slides close to the barriers and in the end I just got a massive lap out of it.
“Just before the crucial lap I said to my engineers ‘This is all or nothing’, and it turned out to be four tenths quicker than the lap before.
“Big thanks to the team – they did a good job and I took my chance to make a bit of a difference. In the end we are only a tenth away from one of the Toro Rossos and right with Lotus, so I?óÔé¼Ôäóm quite happy with my job today.”
In the race he was able to stay closer to the Lotuses than usual: he was seconds behind Heikki Kovalainen when he retired with a broken rear push-rod.
Had difficulty matching his team mate’s pace during the weekend. Glock was able to make a pit stop and come out in front of his team mate on lap 22.
But he stayed out of trouble in his Monaco F1 debut and brought the car home in front of the HRTs
