Vettel Wins Indian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel has won the inaugural Indian Grand Prix with Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso in second and third. Vettel described his car as “perfectly balanced” taking the machine to his eleventh victory of the season. Michael Schumacher had a good race improving on his grid position at 11 to make it to fifth place.

Lewis Hamilton had yet another collision, this time with Felipe Massa. Hamilton made a pass up the inside of a corner when Massa turned in. The stewards gave Massa a drive through penalty and both drivers were clearly angry with one another in the post-race interviews. Hamilton finished seventh while Massa later retired with damaged suspension in an unrelated incident. The crash follows a series of collisions between the two both on and off the track.
