India 2012 - Race results // Sebastian Vettel wins, with Button sneaking in the fastest lap

Published by Christine

Vettel has led every session this weekend, so the race victory wasn't unexpected. Fernando Alonso managed a great start to pass both McLarens, and he finished the race second - the best possible position to keep up his championship chances. It was a one-stopper for most drivers, with just a couple two stopping their way to the end, whilst both De la Rosa and Pérez ended up unclassified after retiring midway through.
