Vitaly Petrov, R30-02
Free Practice 1: P5, 1:26.948, 21 laps
Free Practice 2: P12, 1:17.547, 35 laps

Vitaly: When the weather conditions are changing all the time, it’s difficult to find the right set-up, so we just tried to run and run today, to see how the track was changing and get a feel for the car.


German Grand Prix Preview

Vitaly, let’s look back to Silverstone - another promising race ruined by a puncture…
I enjoyed the race but, of course, I was disappointed with the outcome. I was almost in the points when I had some bad luck with the puncture, so we could have got a much better result. But what is done is done, and it was still good to finish all 52 laps of the race. This gives us lots of information about the car and the track, which was especially important with Robert’s race ending early.

2010 European Grand Prix, Sunday

Vitaly Petrov, P11
Fastest lap: 1:40.100
Started race on option
Pit stop: Lap 9, time in pits: 27.350 (prime)

Vitaly: I’m disappointed with my result today. When you start the race in tenth, the minimum you expect is to keep your position. My problems began at the start because I got big wheel spin and lost a lot of places. After that I tried to keep up good pace and tried to attack De la Rosa, but he had very good speed on the straight it’s very difficult to overtake here so I couldn’t get by.


2010 European Grand Prix, Saturday

Vitaly Petrov, R30-02, P10, 1:38.523

Vitaly: It’s fantastic to get into Q3 because the times were very close today. Unfortunately I made some mistakes on my fastest lap in Q3 so I could maybe have been even higher on the grid. In the race anything can happen so I will try and look after my tyres and make up some positions.

European Grand Prix Preview

Vitaly, you had a tough weekend in Canada. What did you learn?
First of all, I know I made mistakes in the race – at the start, I took a risk by moving onto the grass, it didn’t work and I was given the drive-through penalty. But it was still important to finish the race because it always gives you much more information, particularly about how to look after the tyres in different conditions.
