Fernando Alonso wins the 2010 Korean Grand Prix

Article by Christian A., on October 24, 2010

The inaugural Korean Grand Prix was won by Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso who kept his cool despite facing pressure during the incredibly tight race. Alonso takes the lead of the Formula One world championship battle in the process with this victory from McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa.

There was a 10-minute delay due to persistent rain. Initially, the race was led by Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel. The gap then lengthened between him and his team mate, long-time championship leader Mark Webber.

When the weather worsened, a red flag was raised and this resulted to the nearly one-hour delay with only three laps completed. The action only started in earnest after another 13 laps behind the safety car.

Webber raced for only two and a half laps before he lost control after getting out of line, spinning into a wall, and bringing Mercedes' Nico Rosberg with him as he spun back across the track.

It had appeared that Vettel would be victorious but in lap 46, he had to retire when his Renault engine failed. It can be recalled that Alonso had briefly lost second place to Hamilton in the pit stops earlier in the race during another safety car period.
