Red Bull’s Mark Webber wins the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix

Article by Christian A., on May 27, 2012

The winner at the recently held Monaco Grand Prix is Red Bull’s Mark Webber. This is his second win at Monaco and is his sixth in the 2012 Formula 1 season. He fended off a five-car train and had gotten through some difficult conditions during the race. Webber’s win is the first in F1 history of its kind so by winning, he would make Red Bull the first team to prepare for another win later this year. Second place went to Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg, while Fernando Alonso completed the podium for Ferrari and now leads the world championship. Sebastian Vettel drove the second car.

Lewis Hamilton's McLaren and Alonso's team-mate Felipe Massann also made it to the top 6. Webber, who started with the pole position, had held off Rosberg's Mercedes away from the grid. However, he remained ahead through the sole pitstop sequence, even as Rosberg went to get new tires earlier. Vettel was able to get to sixth place at the start. 

Then it had kept a distance until lap 45 before it made the switch from softs to the super softs. Vettel lapped 1.5s. Vettel came out from trance quicker than so many for a certain period of time. At this point, Rosberg, Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton and Massa were close together in the race. The rain had become a bit heavier just as the tires of the leaders started to fade.
