F1 fans see Vettel dominate in India

29th Oct 2012

Motor racing fans travelling to India for Sunday's Grand Prix saw Sebastian Vettel win a fourth consecutive race to extend his Formula 1 championship lead.

Alongside the Formula 1 tourists - many in India on tailor made holidays - at the Buddh International Circuit near New Delhi were a host of celebrities and dignitaries, including Bollywood film stars, politicians, Olympians and cricketers.

They saw the German Red Bull driver win in India for the second year running to move 13 points ahead of Ferrari's Spanish driver Fernando Alonso at the top of the championship. Alonso took second with Australia's Mark Webber, also driving for Red Bull, claiming third place. British drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Spectators at the race in India also saw Vettel equal a piece of motorsport history. Having now led every lap for three races running Vettel has matched a record set by Brazil's legendary driver Ayrton Senna in 1989.

Vettel said India's Grand Prix was a "very special" one, adding: "I really like the flow of the circuit."
