Piquet Unhappy despite Points

Nelson Piquet Jr was unhappy after race one in Barcelona despite finishing in fifth place after a number of problems held him back from finishing higher

Piquet's race was eventful, with strong battles throughout the event with a number of drivers including Jose Maria Lopez and Neel Jani.

After the race he noted: "I'm really not happy with the race today, even though I picked up some good points.

"I had problems throughout the whole race and we need to find out why - for some reason the first set of tyres we used just didn't behave in the way we expected them to, and there was not a good balance. The second set was normal, and I just don't know what happened.

The tyres were not the only issue plaguing the Brazilian's race today.

He continued: "There were also some other things that went wrong, for example three times a driver in front of me was shown the blue flag and didn't move out of the way.

"One good thing though is that the team did a really good pitstop. We will start from fourth tomorrow and just see what happens."
