Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has dedicated the team's victory in the Italian Grand Prix to former team member, Erin Pezzella, who lost her battle against cancer last week.
Vettel dominated the 13th round in the F1 2011 World Championship and once he got passed the Ferrari of Fernando Alonso following the early safety car period, the result never looked in doubt.
Speaking after the race, Horner added that it was a 'dream come true' to win at Monza and a 'phenomenal result', especially given the circuit was not expected to suit the Adrian Newey-designed RB7.
“A phemonenal race today,” Horner said. “To win in Monza is a dream come true and it was a really dominant performance by Sebastian.
“We had great pit work, strong strategy and Seb made a really brave overtaking move to retake the lead from Fernando after the safety car. Thereafter it was a very controlled and well executed race. It was a great day for the team and a phenomenal result at a circuit which, on paper, wasn't our best.
“Very sadly, we lost a team member earlier in the week, Erin Pezzella, a young lady who has been with the team for four years.
“She lost a very brave fight against cancer and we would like to dedicate this result in her memory.”
