well, how about Alonso?

Here the experience is speaking and Petrov can not long maintain its position. Heidfeld except that up to 12 first lap, Hamilton was behind hard sliding. Even on a straight track at the starting line, Hamilton functioning of DRS still can not overtake.
Unfortunately, Heidfeld loses second position while doing the tire change on lap 14 which coincided with Vettel and Button. When finished changing the tire into the track, Heidfeld was behind Button.
