Vettel wins at Monza!

Sebastian Vettel put in a storming drive on Sunday to take his first grand prix win at the Italian Grand Prix, the 14th round in the 2008 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Vettel, who also took his first pole on Saturday, led throughout - barring the pit stops - and eventually beat McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen by 12.5 seconds.

It is the first time the German has ever won a Formula 1 race – and also the first for Scuderia Toro Rosso, which was born at the end of 2005, following Paul Stoddart's decision to sell the Minardi team to Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz.

Vettel now becomes the youngest ever winner in the history of the sport.

BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica meanwhile took the final spot on the podium, while Fernando Alonso and Nick Heidfeld came in fourth and fifth respectively.

Felipe Massa was sixth for Ferrari, with Lewis Hamilton recovering to take P7, despite starting down in 15th place, followed by Mark Webber, who took the final point for Red Bull.

Full result and report to follow soon...
