Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso had an impressive start but only ended up at fifth place. Meanwhile, sixth and seventh places belong to Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, respectively, who are both from Mercedes-Benz.

Coming in at eight place is Nick Heidfeld who at the start of the race, was driving his Lotus Renault from the back of the grid. The ninth and tenth places went to Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi from the Sauber team.

As mentioned, Alonso started on the grid from third but it took the lead on the first bend trailed by Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber who was pole-positioned. Jenson Button’s start was simply awful and it fell to tenth in the McLaren.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton may have had a better start but only managed fourth. Another driver that started well was Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher who moved up from tenth to sixth. Vitaly Petrov, who was in the Lotus Renault, jumped from sixth to fifth place.

Early on in the race, Kamui Kobayashi’s Sauber had a puncture and had to go into the pit to get new tires. Nick Heidfeld, who was driving a Lotus Renault, began the race at the back of the grid but was able to move fast to the 17th position. On lap five, Jenson Button went past Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Buemi to get the ninth place.
