The 2012 German Grand Prix took place this last weekend


At the 2012 German Grand Prix the race was a little too close, but in the end, Fernando Alonso managed to score his second grand prix victory this season. Mark Webber also won for the second time the following race. The qualification session that took place on Saturday, offered an idea of how the race could finish, especially when Alonso reached with his Ferrari on pole for the second race in a row. Sebastian Vettel was also trying to defend his world titles. Michael Schumacher came in third and Nico Hulkenberg arrived fourth. Because of an unscheduled gear change, Mark Webber came in on eight-place. On ninth place arrived Paul di Resta and Kimi Raikkonen on tenth. The leaders moved off the line in a very smooth way at the race start and then Massa and Grosjean were forced both into the pits for new nosecones. Because of a punctured rear-left tire, Senna and Hamilton also pitted. After the first round of pit stops, Alonso retained his lead leaving Vettel behind. Button started his race on sixth, but held on to the third one, just in front of Raikkonen, who arrived fourth. Even though Hamilton had a full lap behind because of the earlier puncture, he managed to catch the front runners. When the second round of pit stops came, Alonso, Vettel and Button remained on the same places. Of course, until Jenson overtook Sebastian. Until the penultimate lap, Vettel managed to regain his position. Hamilton decided to retire from sixth place before reaching the finish line. In the end Alonso managed to win his third race this season with 154 points. Webber has 120 and Vettel 110. The Hungarian Grand Prix results will be available next week. This will actually be the last F1 race until September, when the summer break will finish.
