Red Bull Racing broke their Istanbul bogey with Sebastian Vettel finally winning at the Turkish Grand Prix. Vettel was followed home in second place by team mate Mark Webber who is experiencing a resurgence of sorts since the last race. The final podium place went to Fernando Alonso of Ferrari. Mercedes’ promise came to not much with Nico Rosberg slipping back to finish fifth while Lewis Hamilton finished in fourth for McLaren. Jenson Button’s race was destroyed by a tyre strategy gone wrong. Button stopped thrice as against four times by others and his tyres went off towards the end of the race allowing Rosberg to catapult past him. Button finished in sixth with the Renaults of Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov finishing in 7th and 8th while STR’s Sebastian Buemi came home in 9th position. Kamui Kobayashi yet again showed his true racing grit by coming from dead last on the grid to finish in 10th position and collect a point for Sauber. Michael Schumacher’s wretched season continued with him tangling with Vitaly Petrov very early and having to pit. This pushed him to last on the track and he finally finished in 12th position. Force India’s Adrian Sutil finished 13th while Paul Di Resta retired due to mechanical failure. Narain Karthikeyan finished at the tail end of the field.
