The race featured its share of retirements as along with Alonso, Mercedes' Nico Rosberg was punted out of his 15th place starting position by Bruno Senna who was later penalized for the incident. Mark Webber too was caught up in the melee and dropped to the tail of the field before recovering to ninth. Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Hulkenberg, Pastor Maldonado and Daniel Ricciardo finished fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and tenth respectively. Michael Schumacher recovered from a ten-place grid penalty that saw him start 23rd and finish 11th, just 0.8 seconds behind Ricciardo. Narain Karthikeyan retired from 20th place following lingering problems with his HRT F1 F112 that started with a damaged floor in Friday practice.
