    Lewis Hamilton retired on Lap 56 of 57

    He was running in Third position, behind Kimi Raikkonen, with Pastor Maldonado right behind him in fourth position. Lewis Hamilton's tyres "hit the cliff as they say" and Raikkonen overtook him, and pulled away, this lead him to have Pastor Maldonado right behind him and Maldonado tried to overtake in the first part of the corner, but Hamilton took the racing line into the second corner meaning that Maldonado had no where to go and went into the side of Lewis Hamilton, Maldonado lost his front wing and finished 10th at the end of the race, However, the stewards blamed Maldonado for the incident and he was given a 20 second race time penalty, to be added to his final time, this meant that his team mate Bruno Senna was promoted to 10th position, and Maldonado finished 12th overall.

    Lewis Hamilton would probably had finished in fourth position as Maldonado would of overtaken on the final lap with the use of DRS and fresher tyres

    Here's a video of the accident -

    Hamilton was 2nd then Raikkonen overtook him towards the end of lap 55 of 57. So he was 3rd then he was hit by Maldonado on lap 56 of 57.
