Vettel Reigns In Spain

Sebastian Vettel’s incredible run of victories continued at the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona this weekend. But it was far from an easy ride. The German driver, with Red Bull Racing, found himself in a titanic struggle with Lewis Hamilton. The Brit was determined to claim victory at the race meeting on Sunday the 22nd of May 2011.

The Circuit de Catalunya in Montmeló, Spain was the setting for this exciting round of the 2011 Formula One Grand Prix Season. The race was 66 laps long, with champion Vetttel starting at second place on the grid. He ended up winning the battle with Hamilton, who drives for McLaren, coming second. His compatriot and team mate Jenson Button was in third place. Mark Webber meanwhile may have set off from pole position but he finished the race in fourth.  Fernando Alonso ironically finished the fifth race of the season, in his native Spain, in fifth. The veteran Michael Schumacher meanwhile completed the race in sixth.

This weekend’s contest resulted in Sebastian Vettel increasing his spot at top of the leader board by 41 points ahead of second-placed Lewis Hamilton. Webber, despite his comparatively poor showing in Spain, keeps third spot in the Driver’s Championship. The World Constructor Championship currently has the Red Bull team at number one with McLaren in second place. Ferrari, represented solely at the finishing track by Alonso, are in third position.

Now, it is on to the next race of the season. When Formula One arrives at the place it is probably most famous for- Monaco.

Sunday the 29th of May 2011 at 14:00 is the date and time of the Formula 1 Grand Prix De Monaco 2011.
