With three laps left, Vettel was recieving tips over the radio to focus on entry and clean exits in the turns, as the gap went back up to 1.2s with the top five as they had been since the restart. It dropped again to .8s, likely as they went through a local yellow caused by a spinning Buemi and Kovalainen. The Finn was soon on fire, and dramatically, on the front straight, getting out cleanly and getting a fire extinguisher to stop the fire himself. The gap was a tiny two tenth on the final lap between Alonso and Vettel, as they went through lapped traffic. It was Petrov ahead, then Massa as they tightened up closer and closer in the race and championship fight. Alonso held off the younger German to keep the win, his second in a row.
