From 19 to 8: Sebastien Buemi's fantastic fight back

The second race of the week-end saw Sebastien Buemi scoring a point... for the best lap. Starting 19th on the grid, he had little hopes of entering the points, but the Swiss nonetheless fought back, did not make a single mistake and finally caught up Alvaro Parente and Ho-Pin Tung. Classified 8th, he only scores the point awarded for the best lap - Kamui Kobayashi, who drove a slightly quicker lap, was out of the top ten (only those in the top ten can score a point for the best lap).

Sebastien Buemi: "I fought as hard as I could. The car was not bad, except when behind another one. We have an aerodynamical problem which makes it very hard to follow another competitor. On the other hand, we are close to solve our brake problems. As soon as the track was free ahead of me, I was able to perform quite competitive laps. Having said that, we still have an understeering problem on which we'll have to work before the next race."
