The Renault Sport Formula One team powered two of its drivers to a top-four finish at the Nurburgring, with Aussie Mark Webber pipping Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel to a podium spot.

Webber began the race in pole position and managed to hold on to a top-three spot behind a rejuvenated Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.

Championship leader Vettel was unable to maintain the high standards he has so far set this season and was 47 seconds further back in fourth.

The result sees Vettel hold on to his top spot in the drivers standings on 216 points, with Webber closing the gap and moving up to 139 points.

Webber said that while he was disappointed not to get the win, two cars in the top four must be seen as a good result.

"I did pretty much everything I could today – it was very intense racing between the three of us at the front. I was pushing to the limit, but there wasn't much more we could do to challenge for the victory," he commented.

"We're a strong unit though - a good team and we'll push on. We know what we need to do."
