United States GP in ten pictures

A look back in pictures at last weekend's 2012 F1 United States Grand Prix, where Lewis Hamilton beat Sebastian Vettel and took victory - enjoy...
With so many great pictures appearing on Crash.net over an F1 weekend it can be hard to keep track. So, here we bring you ten pictures that sum up the 2012 F1 United States Grand Prix.


Sebastian Vettel makes a good start from pole and leads into the first corner...
Mark Webber passes Lewis Hamilton into T1, the latter losing out having started second and on the dirty side of the grid
Webber holds second in the early stages ahead of Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, who jumped up from P7 to P4 at the start. Ferrari's tactics pay off...
Hamilton soon passes Webber on lap 4 and then sets out after Vettel...
Romain Grosjean spins in Turn 19 on lap 7 and slips back. He will eventually fight back to finish seventh, one spot behind team-mate and Abu Dhabi GP winner, Kimi Raikkonen...
Webber's race ends on lap 17 when he suffers an alternator failure - worrying times for Red Bull...
Vettel pits from the lead on lap 22 as virtually everyone opts for a one-stop strategy
Hamilton continues to hound Vettel after the stops and it is not until lap 42 that he finally gets by, with a little help from the HRT of Narain Karthikeyan...
Hamilton then holds off Vettel and takes his fourth win of the year...
Hamilton celebrates on the podium - cowboy hats are compulsory! Vettel is second and Alonso third, something that means the fight for the drivers' title will go to the wire in Brazil this coming weekend...
