Webber tastes glory at last as Red Bull outmuscle Brawn

RED BULL&rsquo;S Mark Webber overcame a drive-through penalty to record a maiden grand prix win at the 130th attempt yesterday in Germany.<br /><br />Webber was punished for causing a collision with Brawn GP&rsquo;s Rubens Barrichello at the Nurburgring&rsquo;s first turn but still led home team-mate Sebastian Vettel in a Red Bull one-two.<br /><br />Ferrari&rsquo;s Felipe Massa took third ahead of Nico Rosberg in the Williams, with championship leader Button fifth, in front of his frustrated Brawn GP colleague Barrichello.<br /><br />World champion Lewis Hamilton&rsquo;s miserable season continued as a puncture saw him trundle home last, despite starting fifth on the grid.<br /><br />Webber&rsquo;s long-awaited success moved him up to third in the drivers&rsquo; standings, while second-placed Vettel cut Button&rsquo;s lead at the top to 21 points. <br /><br />And with a second consecutive one-two, after Vettel led home Webber at Silverstone last month, Red Bull look to have replaced Brawn GP as the fastest team on the grid.<br /><br />Australian Webber started on pole for the first time in his eight-year F1 career but was slow off the mark and swerved into Barrichello as he tried to prevent the Brazilian passing him.<br /><br />That led to a drive-through penalty, but with Barrichello making his first stop simultaneously and the slower Heikki Kovalianen and Massa impeding the pack, Webber was able to emerge in the lead.<br /><br />The 32-year-old did not look back, while the Brawn pair were hampered by a three-stop strategy and, in Barrichello&rsquo;s case, a fuel rig problem.<br /><br />Hamilton tussled with Webber and Barrichello at the first corner, having used his KERS boost off the grid.<br /><br />But he ran wide and, as he returned to the track in fifth place, saw his rear tyre speared by the front wing of Kimi Raikkonen&rsquo;s Ferrari.
