Top three race starters retired from the race. Sebastian Vettel, Romain Grosjean, and Lewis Hamilton also added in the retirement list.

After the safety car delay in mid-time in race, Sebastian Vettel was retiring with a mechanical trouble, and the second place holder Fernando Alonso takes the lead, following some lap Grosjean retiring from the race with a mechanical problem.

Lewis Hamilton was retiring from the race second-last lap in a collision with Pastor Maldonado’s Williams as they fight for third place.

Sebastian Vettel clearly dominates the race in early stages and he keep the place at end of first half. But unfortunately double world champion retired from the race. The race star of Fernando Alonso overtook Nico Hulkenberg, Kimi Raikkonen and Pastor Maldonado.

Safety car pulled out after clear wreckage from a crash between Jean-Eric Vergne’s and Heikki Kovalainen, most drivers completed their second and final pit stops.

Lewis Hamilton’s was very slow, allowing Alonso to get up to third, and the Ferrari guy then went around the outside of Grosjean into the first curve at the restart to claim second.

Following that Alonso was able to pull clear and become the first repeat winner of the 2012 season, retaking the championship lead in the process.

Hamilton detained on to second until the final two laps, when his tyres appeared to wilt.

Kimi Raikkonen got past following a long battle, but when Maldonado tried to do likewise, the pair clashed, putting the McLaren in the barriers and breaking the Williams’s front wing.
