Alonso extends title lead with victory from pole in Germany 23-07-2012

(CNN) -- Fernando Alonso stretched his lead in the world championship standings with a peerless drive from pole position to win the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim Sunday.
The 30-year-old Spaniard was claiming his third victory of the season for Ferrari after wins in Malaysia and the European Grand Prix.
He came home just under four seconds clear of the two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel in his Red Bull.
Vettel overtook McLaren's Jenson Button on the penultimate lap of 67, but race stewards were investigating the move as the German ran wide and off the track as he claimed second place.
Finland's Kimi Raikkonen took fourth for Lotus ahead of Sauber pair Kamui Kobayashi of Japan and Mexican Sergio Perez in fifth and sixth.
Home hero and seven-time champion Michael Schumacher was seventh for Mercedes ahead of Red Bull's Mark Webber, who lost ground in the title race.
German Nico Hulkenberg, who was ninth for Force India, and his compatriot Nico Rosberg, in the second Mercedes, completed the points scoring.
2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) saw his title chances further recede after being forced to retire with damage to his car from track debris.
For Alonso, a third world title beckons after stretching his lead to 34 points over Australia's Webber, with Vettel two further points adrift.
"That was fantastic, again," Alonso said on his Ferrari race radio after he crossed the line.
