Vettel wins as Red Bull secure Constructors'
Sunday 16th October 2011, 08:54
Sebastian Vettel put on a dominant display to win the Korean Grand Prix, finishing 12 seconds clear of McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.
The win and third for Mark Webber seals the Constructors' Championship for the Milton Keynes based outfit for the second year in a row.
It was an intense battle for second between Hamilton, Webber, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso who all finished within just 3.6 seconds of one another.
Felipe Massa completed the top six, whilst Jaime Alguersuari made a late move on eighth place man Nico Rosberg to secure P7 on the final lap.
Sebastian Buemi and Paul di Resta took the final points paying positions.
The pre-race worries about tyres were unfounded as almost every driver completed just two stops.
