Vettel makes it 10 in Korea


World Champion, Sebastian Vettel stormed to his 10th victory of the season in the Korean Grand Prix in a faultless display to underline his champions status.

His victory helped his Red Bull team clinch their second successive constructors championship ahead of their rivals McLaren.

The Red Bull ace took the chequered flag 12 seconds ahead of Britain’s Lewis Hamilton who had faced a strong challenge from Mark Webber in the final twenty laps.

Jenson Button was fourth the first time in five races the former World Champion was off the podium.

Vettel still has a shot at equaling Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 wins in a season, but will have to take the chequered flag in the final three races in India, Abu Dhabi and Brazil to do so.

The results at Korea International circuit meant Red Bull are 140 points clear of McLaren with only 129 available to the end of the season. They compete the rare feat of the double-double, taking back-to-back drivers’ and constructors’ crowns.
