Red Bull's Webber handled the tyre wear better than Fernando Alonso and got past his Ferrari on lap 48 to win the 52-lap race. Webber' teammate Sebastian Vettel secured the last podium spot.

It turned out to be a forgettable outing for Force India, who are based a stone's throw from the Silverstone Circuit.

Paul di Resta bowed out his home race after a collision with Lotus' Romain Grosjean on the opening lap. It seemed Force India would manage some points through Nico Hulkenberg with two laps remaining. The German, however, faltered in trying to save is ninth place from Williams' Bruno Senna and veered into the run-off area. The incidentgave enough time to McLaren's Jenson Button to move ahead of Hulkenberg and grab the last point. Hulkenberg eventually finished 12th.
