Race results - Korea 2013 // Vettel wins as five drivers retire, and Alonso clings on to his title hopes

Published by Christine

Two safety cars interrupted proceedings at the Korea International Circuit, as Sebastian Vettel led from pole position, dominating most of the race to take a strong victory. Behind him, two Lotus drivers managed to take the podium, although perhaps not in the order they might have liked. Fernando Alonso clung on to sixth place, but he and several others were caught behind the super-defensive Nico Hülkenberg who took a superb fourth.
