2 Nov

Sebastian Buemi 6/10 Q9 F retired

After Toro Rosso’s best qualifying session this year Seb started ahead of the Williams and the Renaults, both teams with a history of winning. But sadly the start wasn’t up to the expectations from the day before and like that he was 12th. Over the next 23 laps he worked on getting back up to 9th, which he did before he needed to pit and came out in 12th again, before retiring with an engine failure.

Jaime Alguersuari 7/10 Q10 F8

An amazing feat to get to Q3, especially seeing as he isn’t usually a good qualifier, and unlike Buemi he reached our expectations, although he dropped one place at the start he worked to get up to 9th before pitting and then took himself to 8th, although his second pit took him back to 9th Felipe Massa’a retirement secured him 4 points in the championship.

Timo Glock 4/10 Q24 F retired

Unlucky to have such a short race as Kamui Kobayashi forced him to enter a spin after he retook the track. Timo was unlucky to have to qualify 24th as if it wasn’t for a car malfunction he looked set to start his usual 21st ahead of team mate and both the HRTs.

Jerome D’Ambrosio 7/10 Q21 F16

Shot up the places on the first lap as he managed to avoid the carnage and managed to embark on a good fight with Karthikeyan, a fight he won on lap 50.

Rubens Barrichello 7/10 Q15 F15

Was the worst driver on the first lap going down to 22nd and having to have a front wing replaced, but after that he drove like a demon somehow managing to get the car to 15th before his second pit stop. It was a race which summed up Rubens, never give up.

Pastor Maldonado 6/10 Q13 F retired

Showed his pace in qualifying beating Barrichello by 0.9 seconds and this also took him above both Renaults. Compared to some he had a good start, only losing one place, which he quickly regained before his retirement on lap 12.
