Webber dominates Spanish Grand Prix

Webber dominates Spanish Grand PrixMark Webber secured his first win of the season by taking a commanding victory at the Spanish Grand Prix. After beating Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel into the first corner Webber was never troubled and cruised to his third career victory.

Vettel had to settle for third place behind Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso after suffering a slow pit stop and then brake problems.

Lewis Hamilton was surprisingly able to keep pace with the Red Bull cars and was sitting nicely in second place when, with only 3 laps left, his McLaren’s left front tyre suffered a puncture, sending him off the track. Hamilton’s missfortune promoted Alonso into second and Vettel into the final podium position, with Michael Schumacher showing signs of improvment from Mercedes with 4th place and Jenson Button in 5th.
