Yesterday we had our second race of the championship. A few teams traveled to Brazil to race, only 4 teams (Mclaren,Renault,Toyota and Red Bull)
Qualifying day was cold with some clouds.
After the qualifying sessions Jon Hamiljon (McLaren) and Perando Alfondo (Renault) achieved similar lap times, but the stewards said that Jon did the best time.
1. Jon (Mclaren)
2. Pere (Renault)
3. Marc (Toyota)
4. Bart (Red Bull)
Hamiljon took a lot of risk on the first corner helping him to protect his lead, and gain some breathing room.
Perando Alfondo used his kers on the long straight to avoid Jarno Trumac's pressure.
On turn 2 Perando was racing on the edge of the kerb...
Jarno Trumarc overtakes Alfondo before turn 2, Perando braked too early!!
The Renault used KERS again to recover the position, but a drivers mistake helps Trumarc to retake 2nd position.
Bart's Vettel tries to make contact with the group after having started from the pitlane, but his Red Bull seems to have problems tonight....
Cars on turn 5
As always happens the stewards announce by loudspeaker a phone call for Alonso.... it's his wife!!! So he has to park the car on the gravel!!!
Marc's mistake forces him to enter in the pitlane.
In the end an easy victory for Jon who was never in danger....
