At the start of the race Webber and Rosberg maintained their positions and kept them till the end of the race. Rosberg never let the gap grew more than a sec and a half. Within the last 10 laps Rosberg tried attacking, but Webber was able to maintain his lead and keep him behind. Schumacher got off to a blistering start, but before he reached the first corner he was hit by Renault's Grosjean and dropped to 8th. After that he was stuck behind Kimi Raikkonen until the pitstop round. Down by half a minute, Schumacher in clean air was lapping the top 6 almost half a second quicker, but then trouble hit, his fuel pressure was dropping and had to retire after limping for a few laps.
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso finished third after jumping Lewis Hamilton in the pits. Current Champion Sebastian Vettel finished 5th, while Massa claimed 6th spot.
After the race Michael said:
As for Michael, he was hit on the run to the opening corner which cost him positions, but was very quick when a fuel pressure problem started to slow him later in the race. We tried to continue but it was costing him too much time, dropped him out of the points and forced us to retire the car. It was very disappointing because he put in a great performance this weekend and he was still on course to score useful points. We need to make sure we eliminate the problems for him, starting in Canada.
