Jarno Trulli

Managed little running before qualifying as Fairuz Fauzy took over his car in first practice, and technical problems in the other two sessions limited him to just 14 laps.

Passed Timo Glock and Kovalainen on the first lap and was the first of the new team’s drivers home, with Kovalein just a quarter of a second behind after 52 laps.

Heikki Kovalainen

Took ‘new team pole’ but fell behind Glock due to a problem during his pit stop. Passed Glock with seven laps to go and finished right behind his team mate.
