United States 2012 - Race results // Hamilton snatches victory from Vettel, as Alonso hangs on

Published by Christine

The first lap was surprisingly clean, and Vettel did get a great start, but he didn't manage to scamper away into the distance as he so often does. Lewis Hamilton kept tabs on him throughout, and finally got close enough to make the move, taking victory. Webber suffered the now traditional alternator failure, whilst Alonso held on for third place to keep the championship challenge alive.
