Red Bull driver makes it two wins from two in 2011
11 April 2011

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel claimed another decisive victory in the Malaysia grand prix, making it two wins out of two for the 2011 season.

The world champion was without KERS for the whole race but still managed to take a comfortable win from McLaren’s Jenson Button.

It was Lewis Hamilton who had perhaps the most eventful weekend. The driver narrowly missed out on pole position to Vettel on Saturday but he finished eight after a late change for tyres and a 20-second penalty for an on-track squabble with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

Vettel’s team mate Mark Webber, also without KERS, started third on the grid but dropped down to tenth after a poor start. He recovered well to finish in fourth.

Another great weekend for Renault ended with Nick Heidfeld on the podium after a brilliant drive from him which made up for his dismal performance in Australia.Sean Russell
