Vettel wins in Spain

Sebastian Vettel takes his fourth win of the season in Barcelona with McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button second and third.
Sebastian Vettel wins the F1 2011 Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya.

Vettel, who started second, eventually finished just 0.6 seconds up on Lewis Hamilton, after coming under intense pressure from the McLaren in the closing stages.

Jenson Button meanwhile used a three-stop strategy to grab the final place on the podium with pole sitter Mark Webber a disappointing fourth.

Early leader Fernando Alonso had to settle for fifth in his Ferrari, followed by the Mercedes cars of Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg in sixth and seventh respectively.

Nick Heidfeld recovered having started from last to bring his Renault to the flag in eighth, with Sauber duo Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi completing the top ten.

107SS2009 - Sounds like you're suffering a bit of fanboy paranoia my friend! Vettel is a fine driver, the majority of the crap spouted on here seems to come from the anti-hamilton brigade from my p.o.v Vettel clearly is fast and has the fastest car.

I dont know why some other people say that the race was boring. The race was one of the best. Just .6 second gap up to the last lap. THAT WAS EPIC. Superb driving by Vettel and Hamilton. And a brilliant start by Alonso.
