Kerr suffers tyre problems in A1
Team GB's Robbie Kerr
Kerr could not make the most of a great start
Team Great Britain had a day to forget at the A1 race in Indonesia as left rear tyre problems saw Robbie Kerr limp home in 10th after a front-row start.

Canada's Sean McIntosh won ahead of Malaysia's Alex Yoong, with Australia's Marcus Marshall in third and Christian Fittipaldi of Brazil finishing fourth.

Kerr's chance ended when tyre problems kept him in the pits for 44.5 seconds on lap 30, returning in 15th place.

France lead the standings ahead of Switzerland, Brazil and Great Britain.

McIntosh moved through from the back of the grid to win the feature race, the second and longer of two events.

McIntosh said his win was due to "persistence" and that he "pushed as hard as possible".

He added: "In the feature race, you really don't have anything to lose. The main difference is just how much you risk."

Kerr earned his front-row start with second place in the earlier sprint race behind France's Nicolas Lapierre.

The next race in the series is in Mexico on 26 February, with the final two races of the inaugural 11-event series taking place in California in March and China in April.
