2012 British Grand Prix: F1 Race Results, Winner & Report

2012 Podium British GP: 1. Rosberg , 2. Webber, 3.
Alonso

Event: British Grand Prix
Track: Silverstone Circuit

Mark Webber won the 2012 #F1 Grand Prix of Britain after working hard to keep Ferrari driver Alonso in his sights. Fernando Alonso was the only driver in the top 5 who started on the harder of the 2 compounds and managed to get a gap of 5seconds between him and Webber.

The whole race until lap 38 Alonso was able to maintain his lead. In lap 38 Ferrari pilot Alonso went to the pit to get the softer compound. There is a rule in F1 that you have to use both compounds in the race.

After he got his new tyres, the gap with Webber was closed real quick and Mark Webber got the lead to win the British F1 GP for the second time in his F1 career of his 9 victories overall. Sebastian Vettel had quite a decent race. He started 3rd and managed to pass Michael Schumacher after the first pit stop. He then drove to the finish as third, while Schumacher had to settle for 7th.
