Vettel heads Ferrari pair Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso early on, until he makes his first stop on lap 7. The rest of the front runners also head into the pits for fresh tyres around now...
Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg run 1-2 for Mercedes until they also dive into the pits on lap 13 and 14 respectively...
Adrian Sutil takes his turn at the front for Force India – and it won't be the last time either...
Alonso pits and re-joins in seventh. Sutil and Vettel follow suit, but rejoin behind the Spaniard, who gets the jump on the former into T2. Massa stays out a few laps longer and drops back behind his team-mate as a result...
Pastor Maldonado goes off and beaches his Williams at T1. Nico Rosberg joins him on the sidelines a few laps later when he suffers electronic problems
At the front, Kimi Raikkonen now leads for Lotus until his second and final stop on lap 34....
Massa heads back to the pits for a third time. He is soon followed by Vettel - and then on lap 40 by Alonso. Alonso now tries to chase down Raikkonen, who moves back into P1 on lap 44.
