Heikki Kovalainen, Lotus, Circuit of the Americas, 2013Heikki Kovalainen was unable to bring home points in his first race for Lotus despite starting from eighth on the grid.

Kovalainen was crowded out at the first corner and had fallen four places by the end of lap one. An aggressive early pit stop temporarily jumped him in front of Paul di Resta and Nico Rosberg, but they soon passed him.

“After the pit stop I started to have a few problems,” he said, “but it was difficult to know exactly what was going on. We had issues with downforce so we changed the front wing and after that it was much better, although still not as good as it?s felt previously this weekend.”

That second pit stop dropped him further down the order, and he also had a problem with his KERS. He ended the race 15th, and was promoted on place by Jean-Eric Vergne’s penalty.

  1. Vettel never really opened out much of a gap to the field: was he just managing his gearbox?

    1. I would say so. At some point after his stop he just banged in a fastest lap of the race which was almost a second quicker than the previous one, which had already been set by people with fresh tyres, so that suggests that he could’ve been going much quicker than he actually was.

      Also at the time I thought why didn’t Red Bull let him out a couple of laps longer, so that he could get a grand chelem. I think his tyres weren’t so bad that he couldn’t have managed a few more laps and pit after both Webber and Grosjean.

  2. Just an idea, @keithcollantine , why not use a scatter graph to show the relative starting / finishing positions of the drivers? ;)
