Korean F1 2012 Wallpapers - Sebastian Vettel won the Korean Grand Prix to overtake Fernando Alonso atop the Formula One championship standings.
Two-time defending world champion Vettel finished 8.2 seconds ahead of Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, who started from pole position at the Korean International Circuit. Alonso was third for Ferrari.
The Yeongnam track that hosts the Korean Grand Prix sees action just once a year, that being the Formula 1 race it was built to host. This year the word “action” is a barely accurate descriptor of what happened during the 55 laps, the suspense after qualifying and what the race result meant for certain drivers proving far more entertaining.
But Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso said after last week’s Japanese Grand Prix, having had his once double-digit lead cut to four points, that we could look forward to a mini-season over the last five races between him and Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel.
And what better way to start one than by having the top two title contenders, two title hopefuls and four world champions in the starting five on the grid? If the grid positions meant it was game on, however, Alonso might be hoping that for the next three races he and Ferrari can play the game a little harder. Make that a lot harder.
Red Bull’s Mark Weber had taken pole ahead of Vettel, then celebrated his reservation at P1 by returning to his poor starts of years past. After the lights went green Weber got bogged down, Vettel beat him to the first corner, and by Turn Three Weber’s pressing issue was all the guys in his mirrors and for the time being he had to give up taking the fight to his teammate.
Turn Three is where most of the race’s events would happen, and the bulk of them – again, the few there were – happened on the first lap. Alonso beat McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton to take third, and behind them the ‘destiny’ of Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi took a wrong turn when he plowed into both Jensen Button in the McLaren and Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes. Button’s race was over immediately with damage to the right front. Rosberg made it exactly one more lap before retiring his car into a gap in the guardrail at Turn Three because of damage to his radiator.
