Alonso's lead over reigning champion Vettel, chalking up his second win in a row and third of the season, was cut to four points from 29.
 
Ferrari's Felipe Massa came second, 20.6 seconds behind Vettel, for the Brazilian's first podium finish since October 2010 with Japan's Kamui Kobayashi delighting his home crowd with third place for Sauber.
