Korea 2012 - Rate the race // Did the racing at the Mokpo circuit live up to your expectations?

Published by Christine

After a rather disappointing Japan GP, we had our hopes pinned on the Korean Grand Prix to make up for it. With Red Bull locking out the front row, it looked like it was only a matter of time before Vettel dominated, and that came to pass. There were great battles behind him, though, with the final points positions scrabbled for throughout the race.

Vettel took the race victory and the championship lead but an errant Kobayashi and some loose astroturf became the stories of the day.

The FIA took stock of what happened at Suzuka with a shortened DRS zone, and the race in Korea last year, shortening the zones this year to try and increase overtaking. There wasn't much for the stewards to do during the race though, with just a couple of early retirements and a penalty for Kamui Kobayashi.

After dishing out a penalty to Kamui, stewards had a quiet time and nothing significant required investigating after the race.

The DRS zone had been extended by 80 metres for this year to promote more overtaking, but did it enhance the Grand Prix?

Meanwhile, after the action was over, it was Johnny Herbert's time to take to the podium and dispense with the post-race questions. We're not convinced the podium interviews are the way forward, but how did Herbert get on?
