NURBURGRING, Germany - What a race! It’s what we’d love to see every Formula 1 weekend and it was great that Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) won his home GP at the Nurburgring.Kimi Raikkonen was second after a late tyre change failed to get him close enough to Vettel's Red Bull in an exciting finish while Lotus team mate Romain Grosjean was third.The exploding tyres spectre went away. There was the shock of an on-track burning car – that later rolled itself away across the track – and problems with wheel nuts in the pits. Then a brave recovery by Red Bull’s Mark Webber after a pits fiasco.His early departure shed the right rear wheel, which hit a TV cameraman – who was later declared OK.Supplier Pirelli brought different tyres, with an inner ring of synthetic fibre Kevlar rather than steel, after the controversial blow-outs at Silverstone. There were no failures in practice or qualifying.AFP REPORTS…Sebastian Vettel finally won a race on his home soil on Sunday when he survived spells of intense pressure to steer his Red Bull to victory in the 2013 German GP.The 26-year-old German, who also had never won a race in the month of July, came home narrowly ahead of fast-closing Finn Kimi Raikkonen and his Lotus team mate Romain Grosjean of France.Vettel's win was his fourth this year and the 30th of his career and it lifted him 36 points clear of nearest rival, Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, in the Drivers’ championship.Alonso came home fourth ahead of Britons Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes and Jenson Button of McLaren with Australian Mark Webber seventh in the second Red Bull.Mexican Sergio Perez finished eighth for McLaren ahead of Germans Nico Rosberg in the second Mercedes and Nico Hulkenberg of Sauber. Vettel became the first German to win a German GP at the Nurburgring in the history of the F1 World championship.After the drama of exploding tyres in the previous Sunday's British GP, the race was run without similar incidents other than when an errant wheel flew off Webber's car during a pit stop and struck a TV camerman on his back.He was taken to the circuit medical centre, but later said to be bruised and shocked, but not seriously injured.Result from the 2013 German F1 GP at Nurburgring1 Sebastian Vettel (Germany) Red Bull - Renault 1min41:14.7112 Kimi Raikkonen (Finland) Lotus - Renault +00:01.0083 Romain Grosjean (France) Lotus - Renault +00:05.8304 Fernando Alonso (Spain) Ferrari +00:07.7215 Lewis Hamilton (Britain) Mercedes +00:26.9276 Jenson Button (Britain) McLaren +00:27.9967 Mark Webber (Australia) RedBull - Renault +00:37.5628 Sergio Perez (Mexico) McLaren +00:38.309 Nico Rosberg (Germany) Mercedes +00:46.82110 Nico Hulkenberg (Germany) Sauber - Ferrari +00:49.89211 Paul Di Resta (Britain) Force India - Mercedes +00:53.77112 Daniel Ricciardo (Australia) Toro Rosso - Ferrari+ 00:56.97513 Adrian Sutil (Germany) Force India - Mercedes +00:57.73814 Esteban Gutierrez (Mexico) Sauber - Ferrari +01:00.16015 Pastor Maldonado (Venezuela) Williams - Renault +01:01.92916 Valtteri Bottas (Finland) Williams - Renault +1 lap17 Charles Pic (France) Caterham - Renault +1 lap18 Giedo van der Garde (Netherlands) Caterham - Renault +1 lap19 Max Chilton (Britain) Marussia - Cosworth +1 lapRetiredJean-Eric Vergne (France) Toro Rosso - Ferrari 38 lapsJules Bianchi (France) Marussia - Cosworth 39 lapsFelipe Massa (Brazil) Ferrari 57 lapsFastest lap: Fernando Alonso – 1min33.468, lap 51Drivers’ and Constructors’ pointsDrivers1 Sebastian Vettel (Germany) Red Bull 1572 Fernando Alonso (Spain) Ferrari 1233 Kimi Raikkonen (Finland) Lotus 1164 Lewis Hamilton (Britain) Mercedes 995 Mark Webber (Australia) Red Bull 936 Nico Rosberg (Germany) Mercedes 847 Felipe Massa (Brazil) Ferrari 578 Romain Grosjean (France) Lotus 419 Paul Di Resta (Britain) Force India 3610 Jenson Button (Britain) McLaren 3311 Adrian Sutil (Germany) Force India 2312 Sergio Perez (Mexico) McLaren 1613 Jean-Eric Vergne (France) Toro Rosso 1314 Daniel Ricciardo (Australia) Toro Rosso 1115 Nico Hulkenberg (Germany) Sauber 716 Pastor Maldonado (Venezuela) Williams 017 Valtteri Bottas (Finland) Williams 018 Esteban Gutierrez (Mexico) Sauber 019 Jules Bianchi (France) Marussia 020 Charles Pic (France) Caterham 021 Max Chilton (Britain) Marussia 022 Giedo van der Garde (Netherlands) Caterham 0Constructors1 Red Bull - Renault 252 Mercedes 1833 Ferrari 1804 Lotus - Renault 1575 Force India - Mercedes 596 McLaren 497 Toro Rosso - Ferrari 248 Sauber - Ferrari 79 Williams - Renault 010 Marussia - Cosworth 011 Caterham - Renault 0 Stay with Wheels24 for the 2013 German GP weekend.
