Anthony Davidson Career - Season 2 - HRT[]

Davidson left Lotus at the end of his first season to make way for Kovalainen and also because he wanted a new challenge. He decided to sign for HRT to partner a good mate in Bruno Senna.

In Davidson's first race for HRT he took 8th in qualifying for Bahrain. He had a great race to win. Davidson qualified 13th for Australia but once again had a great race to come through and win his second race as reiging Champion. Davidson missed Q3 once again in Malaysia as he qualfied 12th. The race was chaotic however and Davidson won from Heikki Kovalainen, driving for home team Lotus. Davidson's HRT teammate Bruno Senna claimed his first points of the year in 9th. Davidson missed Q3 for the third time in a row in China qualifying 11th. Come the race however, Davidson just couldn't match the pace of polesitter Hamilton as the latter became the first driver this year to break Davidson's winning streak. Davidson's least favourite race of the year, the Spanish GP was next. For only the second time this year Davidson made Q3, and 9th on the grid, and with Senna in 12th HRT had their best ever grid line-up for their home race. The race was one of attrition and HRT's finishing results was better than their grid. Senna claimed his first ever victory in F1 with Davidson following him in second, claiming the team's first ever 1-2. Heading into Monaco Davidson was upbeat, despite being well off the pace in every practice session. In both Q1 and Q2 Davidson finished 6th but in Q3 he pulled out the fastest lap of the weekend to take pole by half a second. Davidson dominated the race and claimed his first ever Monaco GP win. Moving on to Turkey Davidson took his second highest grid slot in 6th, an achievement that shocked him especially. Davidson moved up to second but was falling far behind first time polesitter and race leader Nico Rosberg. The leader however, spun and Davidson took the lead until the final two laps. On these it started to rain but due to there only being two laps left no-one pitted. This caused chaos as everyone slipped and slid their way around the final two laps as the entire field closed to within 10 seconds. Davidson did however hold on to claim his fifth win of the season. Come Canada HRT brought about a lot of updates and Davidson was quickest all weekend in every session, with Senna right up there as well. Canada qualifying threw up some mega surprises, mainly the top teams going out in Q1 and 2, and HRT, Lotus and Virgin, with the exception of Lucas di Grassi, making Q3. Davidson took pole from his teammate with Hulkenberg third but was stripped of pole and sent to 6th with a gearbox change, along with 8 other drivers who suffered the same fate. Davidson claimed an easy win in the race however, leading home his teammate and Heikki Kovalainen of Lotus. Heading to Valencia Davidson expected to struggle in qualifying. After making Q3 however he set a time only on the hard tyre so he could start on that one. In the race Davidson made a great start and had a great first lap and two corner to take the lead. From there Davidson never looked back claiming his 7th win and another fastest lap.
