Cool customer Vettel makes it two from two in 2011

The delayed Hamilton, Kobayashi, Schumacher and di Resta rounded out the top ten – the Scot scoring points for the second successive grand prix, and this time entirely on merit, and outperforming his far more experienced team-mate Adrian Sutil, who ended up eleventh – whilst Rosberg, Buemi, Alguersuari, Heikki Kovalainen and Timo Glock were the final finishers.

But the final word should go to the race-winner, who ebulliently declared to his team on his victorious slowing-down lap: “In the heat, we kept our heads cool – I'm loving it!”

to give alonso his dues, he was trying to pass WITHOUT the benefit of drs. so at least he was racing. he had to stay in slipstream as long as he could, but just miscalculated, as webber did last year, with less disastrous results. ps. eddie, dont sing too loud, rob might hear you!
