Hamilton sees off Lotus to win

Sergio Perez in 14th was the final driver on the lead lap for Sauber, ahead of Toro Rosso duo Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne and the Caterham of Heikki Kovalainen – the Finn finishing ahead of the second Sauber of Kamui Kobayashi.

Only two drivers failed to make the finish, with Michael Schumacher and Narain Karthikeyan both retiring in the closing stages. Schumacher had suffered a race to forget when he was left on the grid when the first attempt at a start had to be aborted and then picked up a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pit-lane as he attempted to join the race at the back of the field.

The German failed to make any impression on the race from that point onwards before pulling into the pits to stop with less than ten laps to run.

Time for Mclaren to put everything behind Lewis if they want a realistic shot at the championship. Sorry Jenson, but you are the best part of 4 wins behind Alonso, and its not going to happen this year.
