Scuderia Ferrari scored a convincing 1-2 victory at a terminally boring German Grand Prix. For although Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel looked set for victory after qualifying in first position yesterday, the home favourite was quickly passed by Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso going into the first corner at the start of today’s race. From here on in then the prosession began with Vettel trailing the two scarlet cars in third position right until the checkered flag unfurled on Lap 67. Indeed, the only glimpse of excitiement occured when Massa – who led for most of the race distance – was eventually passed by his team-mate Fernando Alonso; a move that saw the young Spaniard narrow the points gap between himself and the championship leaders. Fourth position was claimed by McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton while his team-mate, Jenson Button, crossed the line in fifth. Mark Webber came home in sixth.
