Korea 2012 - Race results // Sebastian Vettel secures victory in Korea, with Alonso on the podium

Published by Christine

Sebastian Vettel led from the start, as Mark Webber (predictably) got bogged down off the line. There were a few good battles for position as the race wore on, but it was Kobayashi who caused the biggest stir of the day. The Sauber managed to take out two drivers on the first lap, Button and Rosberg, get a drive through penalty for the incident, and then retire from the race anyway.
