The crash caused Vettel the race and Webber had to go into the paddock for a new front wing who eventually went on to finish third. 7 time world champion Michael Schumacher though only managed fourth with his team mate Nico Rosberg finishing behind him. With both Red Bull drivers out, Hamilton took control of the lead only to have Button dog fighting him and almost nearly overtaking his team mate.

On sixth place is Robert Kubica of Renautl F1 and it was a race to forget for both the Prancing Horse drivers with Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso both finishing on sixth and eighth. Adrian Sutil of Force India continued his fine run in the race with a ninth place finished while Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber finished tenth to wrap up the points. Both drivers from Lotus Racing, Jarno Trulli and Heiki Kovalainen could not finish the race while the other rookie teams, Virgin and Hispania Racing all finished.

Webber started the race on pole with Hamilton breathing down his neck and his team mate Vettel on third place. Vettel did overtook Hamilton only to lose it to him again. Schumacher too had a surge to fourth place where he started a position behind but also lost it to Jenson Button eventually. The race then began to settle and it was up to the McLaren and Red Bull drivers who were neck to neck but as much as the teams were battling each other out, the drivers too were fighting for points themselves.

In lap 41, both the Red Bull drivers did the unthinkable when they crashed into each other and Webber survived between the 2 and continued to finish third while Vettel had to forget the race. With the win, Webber now holds 93 points with Button on second place with 88 and Hamilton third with 84 points. McLaren, with the one-two finish now leads the Constructors’ championship with 173 points while Red Bull is only a point behind.
