The Korean Grand Prix was won by Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, his fourth F1 win in a row. During qualifying, Vettel was able to secure pole position and was trailed by Hamilton and Webber. Vettel got an early lead. Massa’s Ferrari then spun around, leading to a scuffle where Adrian Sutil and Jenson Button both got some wing damage.

In the first half of the race, Romain Grosjean and Lewis Hamilton took turns hoping to catch up to Vettel. Falling behind the top three were Nico Rosberg, Nico Hulkenberg, and Fernando Alonso. The tires of Mercedes’ Hamilton started to suffer and had worn down quickly, widening the gap between his car and Lotus’ Grosjean. As Hamilton became slower, his team-mate Rosberg came to overtake but his front wing collapsed and this slowed down the Mercedes.

Raikkonen immediately grabbed the opportunity and went up two places before the safety car was rushed to the scene after Sergio Perez's right-front tyre disintegrated, leaving scattered debris throughout the track. Webber, who came after Perez, hit the debris and had a puncture.

After the restart, Vettel quickly accelerated and widened his lead. Following him were Lotus’ Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen, who swapped places after an exciting overtaking move during the previous lap. What came then was that Sutil had spun, hitting Webber. The Red Bull car caught fire in the run-off area. The alarm was sounded as a firefighting vehicle entered the circuit even when there was no safety car before it.
