Alonso leads F1 championship after rain-lashed Korean GP

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso won an incident-packed Korean Grand Prix Sunday to take over the lead in the F1 world title race as his Red Bull rivals Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel failed to finish, according to CNN. The two-time champion took the checkered flag from McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton, with his Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa in third place. It leaves the Spaniard with an 11-point lead in the championship from Webber, with 2008 champion Hamilton 21 points adrift. Vettel, who had looked set to lead the championship, is fourth 25 points behind, with two races to go. But the story of the race, held in appalling conditions on the new Korea International Circuit and Yeongam, was the demise of the Red Bulls. Australian Webber held a 14-point advantage going into the inaugural Korean GP and had started second on the grid behind his teammate Vettel.
