there Were three big prizes for the end of the championship 2012 and Vettel and Alonso, both with two titles, played for a be tricampeones. The German led by 13 points at the Spanish, 240 in front of 227, the lack of evidence of Abu Dhabi, united States and Brazil. Coming to a circuit where the distance between the two could be extended by the superiority of Red Bull in that path, and so we saw from Saturday. Hamilton scored the pole with the McLaren, ahead of Webber and Vettel. Alonso was only able to be seventh, and would leave four positions behind his rival. However, once you cross the finish line, the single-seater of Sebastian stopped, and the pilot had to get off without being able to take it back to the pit-lane. Had run out of fuel, and was punished with from last in the race, from the 24th square. In addition, I could not overtake anyone in the output, since it decided to boot from the street pit.

Alonso went on to the sixth position on the grid, and it all changed in the face Sunday. Rose suffered a problem in his HRT before you start and Vettel already won a seat before you put your car in gear. Hamilton held the pole position, Raikkonen was second, with the Lotus and Alonso fourth. In the first round had been played Senna and Di Resta, Grosjean had suffered a puncture, Rosberg had the wing damaged and Hulkenberg dropped out, so Vettel climbed to the 18th place. He was wearing touched the front wing, but continued to back to back to back, and in the turn number eight was 13th, with Alonso a place on the podium. Came out a Safety Car by a touch between Rosberg and Karthikeyan, who went behind the two favorites for the title, and turned it all upside down. During the period in which the safety car was on track, Sebastian made a mistake and took in front a poster of speed, damaging even more his wing, and he was forced to enter to change it as well as put on new tyres.
When the Safety Car went off, Vettel was last again (21), and although he had already made his stop, had to comeback again. Was passing other cars and on lap 19 he was 15. Hamilton led, with fastest lap included, when his McLaren’s left him and had to retire. Raikkonen picked up the head of the race, and Alonso went to the podium, after the Finnish and Maldonado. The Spanish, motivated by the circumstances that they were giving, ahead of Pastor, and was placed second. Vettel took advantage that he had already stopped (and the rest) to gain positions, and after the touch between Massa and Webber, was 7th on lap 26. Now came the turn of steps in the boxes to the riders in front of me, and Vettel was second with Alonso third and Button fourth. However, the tires of his Red Bull began to suffer and went to change, returning to the track in fourth position, away from the podium.

there Was a twist multiple between Perez, Grosjean and Webber, and he went out again to the Safety Car, grouping the pilots head. Alonso (2nd) was placed at seven points in the championship of Vettel (4th). The Red Bull is launched to hunt in the McLaren, and Alonso in pursuit of victory. Sebastian went to Jenson Button and got three more points coming up to the podium, but Fernando could not with Kimi. The Lotus achieved three years after to win a race, after two seasons away from the Formula 1. Vettel had managed the feat of finishing third, starting from the pit lane, and out of Abu Dhabi with ten points on Alonso. What happened later in Brazil, in the last test, given for the book, but what is certain is that Vettel was three-time by three points. Therefore we can say that that day, at the Yas Marina, was driven from the pit lane until the championship trophy.
