2010 KOREAN GRAND PRIX // RACE RESULTS

2010 KOREAN GRAND PRIX // RACE RESULTSOn Sunday, Fernando Alonso collected his fifth victory of the 2010 season, finishing the inaugural Korean Grand Prix ahead of Lewis Hamilton and his Ferrari teammate, Felipe Massa. The rain soaked grand prix, held at the new Korea International Circuit, started under caution and did not go green until 17 laps had been run behind the safety car. Disaster struck the Red Bull team after just two green flag laps, when Mark Webber lost control of his RB6 and collided with Nico Rosberg. That brought the safety car out once more and allowed Alonso to slot into second behind Vettel, and Hamilton to take third ahead of Felipe Massa.

The top three continued in that order until Vettel's RB6 came to a stop on the approach to turn three, and for the second time this season the young German was robbed of a likely win due to a car failure. In the closing stages of the race tire wear came into play. Alonso seemed to have looked after his tires and by the end of the race was lapping the 3.49 mile circuit some four seconds per lap faster than the cars behind. Shortly thereafter Alonso brought his F10 around the final lap to win the inaugural Korean Grand Prix and claim 25 points on a day when both Red Bull drivers failed to score.
