Car Red Bull Mark Webber "cough" and a thick white smoke on the second corner. Bump occurs, Adrian Sutil in the crowd jet twisted land. Robert Kubica affected by this incident, he scattered far back.

While one round left, fast cars were not as firm as usual - of course, because they now have "full tank" because of restrictions in the middle of the race refuelling.

Karun Chandok of HRT (Hispania Racing Team) just takes Formula 1 debut in less than two laps after his car stalled. Later the Indian driver said he hit a bumpy track and the car was stuck.

Another debutant driver, Nicolas H├╝lkenberg, twist in the third lap, distracted at a curve and almost hit another car. A1GP dropout was fortunate to still be ongoing, but not with Lucas in Grassi who drove out the tracks and not move again. Virgin team debutant driver was lucky not follow Chandok.

Up to six laps overtaking has not happened. The power is still relatively balanced car because "mind" of fuel. One exception is when Sutil managed to overtake Heikki Kovalainen.

Alonso fastest lap record on lap seven, two seconds ahead of the competition the leader Vettel.

On lap 13 Bruno Senna's first Pitstop melakoni HRT, and one lap later after Vitaly Petrov. However, Petrov seemed problematic and yellow Renault car was not out again. Another debutant drivers out on the first series.

Before Petrov, his team mate Robert Kubica first replace the tires and went out into the fastest drivers in the towel. Polish drivers are doing this because more fresh tires and fuel the car began to decrease.

As far as the race still looks "quiet". Unless the debutants who out there is no exciting maneuvers that happen.

In front, the fight Vettel, Alonso and Massa remains tight, with the distance between them each two seconds. So far it seems pretty safe Vettel in a position mempertahanan.

But the situation changed into his 34th lap. Alonso getting closer and the distance with Webber was not until a second. Even at the end of the lap that he managed to race Webber and became the race leader.

Alas for Vettel, the car seemed to lose power. Shortly after the overtake Alonso, he was followed by Massa. As a result Ferrari is now taking the position 1-2, and Webber had to work hard to maintain at least a podium.

Alonso started on the threshold for continuing to widen the championship with Massa distance. Webber? After losing the third place after Hamilton disalip in lap 38, he also hunted Rosberg continued even Schumacher.

When the finish line in sight, Alonso did the zig-zag movement to mark the victory - the first for Ferrari, which had 22 in his career. Massa followed 16 seconds later, and Hamilton followed.
