Spanish Grand Prix Analysis

Red Bull may have dominated the Spanish grand prix but they faced another break failure with Sebastian Vettel and Mclaren's great race pace is much closer to Red Bull then in Qualifying we take a team by team analyse.
Red Bull
Mark Webber 1st Place
Sebastian Vettel 3rd Place
Red Bull were very fast in qualifying with both Webber And Vettel they were both eight tenth faster the Lewis Hamilton in third place , But thier race pace wasn't that fast Mark Webber won the race from the first lap but Lewis Hamilton could match the Red Bulls pace and was able to pass Vettel even though he pitted after the German . Another issue for Red Bull is reliability Vettel suffered another break failure the is his 3rd from five races.
Fernando Alonso 2nd Place
Felipe Massa 6th place
Ferrari may have brought thier own version of Mclaren's F-DUCT and it worked great for them with Felipe Massa's fastest top speed with 312 KPH but Ferrari slipped back behind Red Bull And Mclaren as well but never the less Fernando Alonso drove a great race to take second place thanks to Hamilton's retirement and Vettel's Failure . Felipe Massa in the other hand is having troubles with new car and Ferrari are investigating his pace in spain but i expect him to back in Monaco.
Micheal Shumacher 4th Place
Nico Rosberg 13th Place
One thing was clear in the race that Mercedes wasn't as fast as it seemed in free practice but we are all happy to see Micheal Shumacher fighting again his move on Button after the English man came out of the pit was very aggressive and then defending the place from Button was also very nice Mercedes made a great step foward with Micheal , But what happened with Nico Rosberg okay he got a bad start and had a pit stop problem but his pace was not good.
Jenson Button 5th Place
Lewis Hamilton Retired in 2nd Place with two laps to go
Lewis Hamilton drove a fanastic race he managed to keep up with the Red Bulls and passed Vettel when he had a chance when the German was coming out of the pits and and ran in second place until he had his left front tyre blown off .Jenson Button started the race well and he was right back Fernando Alonso but he lost time i the pits and came behind Micheal Shumacher and never got passed the German.
Force India
Adrian Sutil 7th Place
Tonio Liuzzi Retired
Adrian Sutil made a good start and made the places and made a good jop of keeping behind Robert Kupica's Renualt ,Liuzzi struggled with the soft tyres and was the first to switch to the harder tyres he eventually retired with power loss but that didn't affect his place.
Robert Kubica 8th Place
Vitaly Petrov 11th Place
Kubica made a bad start and then found himself behind Adrian Sutil and couldn't got past him to finish the race in eighth place,Petrov was to cautious on the start unlike his first races and missed the points in eleventh place.
Rubens Barrichello 9th Place
Nico Hulkenberg 16th Place
Barrichello drove a great race from 17th on the grid to finish 9th ,Hulkenberg was in a good place but an of road moment after his pit stop cost him a lot .
Toro Rosso

Jaime Alguersuari 10th Place
Sebastien Buemi Retired
Alguersuari had a messy race, running right behind Sutil and ahead of Kubica early on before a sticking front left wheel nut lost him a lot of ground in the first pit stop. Later he carved up Chandhok when he misjudged a lapping move, and got a drive-through penalty for his troubles. A point on home ground was thus welcome, but he was disappointed that he could not convert good race pace into something better. Buemi walloped De la Rosa on the opening lap and needed a new nose at the end of it, later got a drive-through for an unsafe release into Trulli’s path, and then retired with hydraulic problems.

BMW Sauber

Kamui Kobayashi 12th Place
Pedro de la Rosa Retired
Both drivers were involved in first-lap incidents, Kobayashi with Kubica, and De la Rosa with Buemi.

Jarno Trulli 17th Place
Heikki Kovalainen did'n start at all
Trulli drove a great race to finish best of the new teams ,Kovalainen couldn't start the race because of gearbox softwere.
Timo Glock 18th Place
Lucas di Grassi 19th Place
Virgin got both cars to the finish line with Tomo Glock right behind Jarno Trulli's Lotus .

Karun Chandhok Retired
Bruno Senna Retired
Senna’s undertray had been repaired after damage was discovered that had lost him downforce all through practice and qualifying, but he got caught out in Turn Four on the opening lap after a spectacular start, and crashed out. Chandhok started at the back after a gearbox replacement, but made good progress until he was assaulted by Alguersuari and had to pit for a replacement nose. Soon after, further damage sustained in the incident forced him out.
