Ominous Vettel-Red Bull package dominance – Vettel wins 2012 Korean F1 Grand Prix

Vettel out-drags Webber into first corner off the start, then is never really challenged.

Webber hangs on comfortably to second.

Alonso third through most of the race.

Hamilton nudges into fast starting Raikkonen, then has difficulties with tire wear and handling, can only hang on to tenth from a fast-charging Perez.

Massa looks the faster Ferrari from the first tire stop, but is held to fourth.

Kimi lonely, most of the time, in fifth, but scraps with Lewis intensely as Lewis does everything he can to hold position.

Hulkenberg duels with tentative Grosjean, doing very well to take sixth, followed closely by Grosjean.

Tire wear, especially front right, more than anticipated.  Most cars struggling to the end listening to many anxious pit-wall radio calls pleading for restaint.

Vettel takes over first in the championship, with six points to spare going to India, looking extremely strong to win his third championship in a row.  Awesome!
