Sam Michael was left to lament yet another problem filled race for the struggling Williams team in the Canadian Grand Prix.

Rubens Barrichello lost places at the start due to an anti-stall problem before colliding with Jaime Alguersuari and team-mate Nico Hulkenberg crashed into the back of Adrian Sutil's Force India. Hulkenberg eventually finished 13th with Barrichello one place behind him.

"We had lots of issues during the race today," said Michael. "On Rubens car, we had an anti-stall at the race start, from which he made a reasonable recovery; however he then lost some positions at turn 2 because of an accident in front of him. Shortly after his first pit stop for prime tyres, he came together with another car and had to pit again for a front wing change.

"Nico had a good first lap, then ran into the back of another car on lap 6, forcing him to pit for a spare front wing. He made reasonable progress then, but had to take a drive through penalty for speeding in the pit lane."
