Vettel penalised in German GP
DROPPED FROM PODIUM SPOT: Sebastian Vettel will have to try in 2013 to win his home Grand Prix in Germany following Fernando Alonso's commanding win at Hockenheim.
HOCKENHEIM, Germany - Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel was demoted from second to fifth in his home German Grand Prix for leaving the track while overtaking McLaren's Jenson Button on the penultimate lap.
Stewards imposed a 20 second penalty to the Red Bull driver's total race time, which promoted McLaren's Button to second and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen to third.
Vettel, who has yet to win his home Grand Prix and indeed any race in July, went wide as he and the McLaren ace went through a corner side by side.
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso dominated the race from pole position
