Sebastian Vettel took another victory to add to his domination of the 2011 season – but it was something of a topsy turvy race. Both Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton found themselves out of place and fighting traffic, whilst a Safety Car period kept the field bunched up together… for a while at least. Renault had a bad day, whilst Force India picked up a double points finish.
