Starting from pole position, Hamilton uzherzhal its leadership, and Felipe Massa broke the third place at the start of the fifth, leaving behind not only Nico, but Kimi. Both Ferraris were so quick and Felipe at the top even put pressure Fernando that is already on the fifth lap ahead of Hamilton in sync. Kimi while also not lagged behind, keeping its speed even after contact with the car of Sergio Perez. The first seven forced had to start the race on the soft part of the rubber, so that the first pit stops began after the sixth round. And leaders came those pilots kotorve chosen for the first segment of the tire Medium. Peloton led Nico and settled behind him Vettel, Button, Perez and Di Resta. But all of them still had to travel part of the distance to the “soft”, and team tactics have chosen completely different. Jenson Button managed to delay the first pit-stop right up to the 24 range, where some of the drivers committed for the second stop. Hulkenberg decided postvil Soft in the middle distance, to get to the race on the harder up. The latter option does not work, because at the finish Nico was only tenth, Jenson was able to finish fifth, but Sebastian Vettel on a similar tactic almost wins fourth place in Hamilton. On a lightly battered car, but with the same as upobeditelya, tactics second place went to Kimi Raikkonen. And Lewis Hamilton (3rd place) earned a second consecutive podium for the team Mercedes. However, on the last lap the Englishman’s position was called into question. Soft Vettel put in just four laps to go, and with empty tanks quickly began to reduce the backlog. As a result, at the finish of Lewis shared just two tenths of a second. Not too well, there was a race for Felipe Massa (6th), podrasteryal after a pit stop your order.
