Perfect Webber clinges Spanish victory

By Lee Catuzzi

Australian Mark Webber conquered Spain with style and without any mistakes. After a perfect qualifying he went to lead and finish the Spanish GP as many before have done in the past nine years.
Lewis Hamilton was as good as ever but like Alonso in Malaysia he had to abandon the race at the last lap because of a puncture. That moved Alonso to second place between the Red Bulls of Webber and Vettel.
Michael Schumacher finished fourth and held Button for several laps. At the beginning Jenson tried maybe too hard  to pass the German in the same spot at every lap where Michael reacted and closed the right door at the right time.

Vettel seemed to have lost  his third place due to a brake failure and was actually told after a pit stop to be careful because the problem was quite serious. He desperately wanted to stay on the track to collect any small amount of points and must have been very satisfied to have achieved a podium position after all that.
Felipe Massa was a distant six, just over a second behind Button.
Barricchello scored well by finishing ninth for Williams after a brilliant first lap (from 17th to 12th).

This results has made the battle even more interesting and obviously wide open. Button is still 1st but Alonso has now advanced from third to second with only three points between them.
Hamilton instead of being just above Alonso in the standing, is instead in sixth position 21 points behind.

Next weekend the F1 circus will move directly to a new circuit, to the legendary streets of Monaco.
