Vettel wins European GP from pole position 1

Vettel wins European GP from pole position

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel got his championship challenge back on-track after a commanding victory in Valencia this afternoon. The German led every lap of the action-packed race from pole position to record his second win of the season and promote him to third in the championship, behind fellow podium finishes Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Team-mate Mark Webber failed to finish after a colossal crash with Heikki Kovalainen early in the race.

Vettel kept the lead from pole position at the start despite a strong challenge from Hamilton who damaged his front wing slightly after making contact with the German. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso leaped into third at the end of the first lap, while Webber dropped to ninth after a dismal opening tour. Things went from bad to worse for the Australian after pitting for a fresh set of rubber on lap 7. After rejoining Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus, he tried to overtake the Finn going into turn 12 but hit the rear of his rival and was catapulted into the air.
