Vettel who won unlucky qualifying session because he was always even led the race since the race started until more than half the race. Misfortune that happened in the 34th lap when the car 'Red Bull' his running out of energy, while the pace of' The Princing Horse 'steady.

Once Alonso pass him, Massa soon do the same thing on Vettel. More unfortunately again for the German driver, he missed the podium for the next followed by Lewis Hamilton is also the right to occupy the third place.



The road race

Green light, Vettel managed to secure his position at the first corner, while Alonso managed to poke untukmasuk Massa in second place. Nico Rosberg is also able to position ahead of Hamilton in fourth.

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.

"This fifth lap at the circuit. I hit a bump that I did not know was there," said Chandok who has no record of the time in training sessions, while yesterday's qualifying session was the first full lap in the car Hispania.

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.

Schumacher made his first Pitstop in three years on lap 16. Alonso also do the same - the first time in over Ferrarinya. On lap 18, Webber signed with the Pitstop spend only four seconds, or half a second quicker than Massa. Leading position has not changed, still Vettel, Alonso, Massa.

On lap 19 Senna excluded. HRT his engine failed. It's finished the first endeavor of the late Ayrton Senna's nephew and the origin of the Spanish team.

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.

Vettel had to settle for fourth place, Rosberg fifth, and Schumacher, in his comeback after three years pensium, immediately won a large six positions.
