Published by Christine

Sebastian Vettel scooped another dominant pole position, with teammate Mark Webber opting for a different tyre strategy and still managing fourth. The two Mercedes lined up between them, whilst championship contender Fernando Alonso was all the way down in eighth place. Romain Grosjean's race suddenly became very difficult when he dropped out in Q1, on the wrong tyre at the wrong time.
