Alonso leads the Drivers championship after German Grand Prix 2012
Alonso continued his winning ways and now leads the drivers championship with 154 points. Mark Webber despite his low key performance continues at 120 points and in second place. His team mate Sebastian Vettel who was foolish enough to overtake Jenson Button with all four wheels outside the racing line was penalised and demoted to 5th from 2nd position. Else, it would have been pretty close. Kimi Raikkonen is now at 98 points and fourth in the race. Lewis Hamilton who is having a miserable patch continues to be at 92 for the last few races and is now at 5th position.
Michael Schumacher despite his starting grid position of 3rd in the German Grand Prix couldn't add a lot of points to his tally and is now at 29 points and 12th in the race. Realistically the championship race is mostly between the top four drivers now.
