Hamilton leads McLaren 1-2 at Turkish Grand Prix

2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and 2009 World Champion Jenson Button earned McLaren a perfect 1-2 finish at Turkish Grand Prix here on Sunday. This was McLaren's second 1-2 finish of the 2010 season since the Chinese GP.

Until lap 40 the race seemed to be Red Bull's another 1-2 finish and the McLarens 3-4. But on Lap 41 Sebastian Vettel got a run on Mark Webber on the Turn 12, and was had a spin wildly down the road which lead to his retirement with a punctured right-rear tyre. Mark Webber was forced to run wide. The two McLarens who awaited a mistake from Red Bulls picked their way gleefully through the debris to snatch the leading positions.

Michael Schumacher’s Mercedes finished fourth on the podium with team mate Nico Rosberg finished fifth ahead of Renault’s Robert Kubica and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa who had a race-long battle for sixth.
Mark Webber still leads the world championship with 93 points to Button’s 88 and Hamilton’s 84, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso who is fourth on 79 from Vettel on 78.

The controversial yet gripping race moves McLaren back ahead of Red Bull in the constructors’ championship, with 172 points to 171, with Ferrari third on 146 and Mercedes fourth on 100. Renault has 73.
