Glock had a frustrated weekend, qualifying last then retiring when his left-rear wheel fell off during his first pit stop. “A very disappointing way to end the season,” he said.
The team was fined €5,000 for the infringement.
|Pit stop 1||Soft 21.859s|

In his last race for Virgin, D’Ambrosio out-qualified his team mate, leaving Glock last on the grid.

However shortly after the race the team announced he was being replaced by Charles Pic for 2012.
