Vettel dominates India again

0

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel has come alive in the latter half of 2012 and so has his car. Leading every lap in sunday’s Indian Grand Prix, Vettel cruised to a victory, Stretching his lead over Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, Vettel was sublime all afternoon. For Alonso, it was about damage limitation and finishing second is as good as he could do given Red Bull’s pace as well as McLaren’s resurgence.

Alonso managed to pass both McLarens and eventually take Mark Webber’s second place as the Australian was without KERS. A good day for Ferrari all things considered. Alonso’s teammate didn’t help matter by finishing behind both McLarens missing a chance to stretch Ferrari’s lead even more.

Honorable mention to Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg who finished 8th! Oddly, the Force India cars were rarely seen on the television feed and as an Indian racing team running in the top ten, you have to wonder why.
