Vettel Wins In Barcelona, Hamilton Comes Second

Yet another win this weekend for Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel at the F1 2011 Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya. The current world champion managed to win the race after starting behind his teammate Mark Webber. Vettel defended his position very well in front of Lewis Hamilton who tried to surpass him during the last part of the race but was unable to take the win.

The final place on the podium was obtained by Jenson Button who had a clever 3-stop strategy, followed by Mark Webber who had a rather disappointing race. Ferrari’s Alonso had a great start and after the first corner he was first, but in the end he had to settle for the fifth place. Behind Fernando finished Michael Schumacher and his colleague Nico Rosberg.

Nick Heidfeld had an impressive race as despite the fact that he started from the last position on the grid, he finished in an honorable eight place, followed by the Sauber duo consisting of Sergio Perez in ninth place and Kamui Kobayashi in tenth place.
