Virgin Strike Back
Spanish Grand Prix
It might have been a bit of a dull race, but the results have certainly spiced up the Championship being fought by the new teams. Virgin are back in the game and Hispania are struggling again.
It was a bad start to the race for current leader Heikki Kovalainen, who didn’t even start the race after his gearbox failed to work. It wasn’t much better for Bruno Senna, who was hit in the rear during the first lap and retired.
A solid race for the rest of the drivers followed, with the only over drama was when Jaime Alguesuari cut back onto Karun Chandhok too early, making Chandhok lose his front wing. A lap later, Chandhok was out of the race.
Despite a good battle between former Toyota team mates Trulli and Glock towards the end, it ended pretty much as it started in the first place.
