Qualifying threw up quite the surprise, but that is over and done with, and it is to the race we turn our attention. We have a Williams on pole position, with two feisty Red Bulls sitting behind, so the start and the first corner are going to be more important than ever.

Thankfully, the weather looks to be holding off for the race today. With such an interesting grid line-up, we want some nice clean conditions to make the most of it. There could be a few clouds in the sky, but according to the forecast, any rain has already left the area.

One to watch

Would it be too predictable to say Hülkenberg? Okay, then, let's go for Sutil instead. He already has the annoyance of a five place grid drop left over from Korea, and then struggled in qualifying due to his teammate.

I passed him because he was just cruising around the last corner and I was on my flying lap. I had to pass him there, and then I had a bad exit so he passed me again in the next corner and destroyed my second lap. After I let him by, he came off the circuit and came back on in front of me on my next flying lap. I feel the team should have a word with him. I don't have to ask them, they are already going to have a word.

- Adrian Sutil

Starting from the back row of the grid, it will be interesting to see what a fired up Sutil can do.
