Mark Webber overtakes Fernando Alonso late in British Grand Prix to win 2nd race of season
SILVERSTONE, England (AP) ¯¯¯ Red Bull driver Mark Webber won the British Grand Prix on Sunday, overtaking Fernando Alonso late in the race to cut his rival's lead in the Formula One championship.
In dry conditions after two days of rain at Silverstone, Webber pursued pole-sitter Alonso from the start and finally passed the Ferrari driver on lap 48.
It gave Webber a second victory in this unpredictable season to move within 13 points of Alonso, the only other driver to win more than once in 2012.
Over the team radio, Webber said: "It's another great day for us."
Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel was third.
