Korean Grand Prix 2011: Red Bull’s Vettel wins in Yeongam
Sebastian Vettel secures 10th victory of 2011 to hand Red Bull their second consecutive constructors' title
Sebastian Vettel won the Korean Grand Prix from McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton to help Red Bull wrap up the constructors’ championship in Yeongam on Sunday.
The world champion sealed his 10th victory of the season as Red Bull secured their second consecutive Formula 1 constructors’ title.
“It’s good to see the whole team keeps on pushing,” said Vettel. “To come here, after a tough ride early in the weekend and a tough qualifying, the car was superb, getting quicker and quicker.
“I didn’t need the safety car, with Lewis close again, but I was able to manage the gap and push when I had to.
“But after last weekend in winning the drivers’ title, now the constructors’, this is fantastic, with a lot of thanks to [engine suppliers] Renault.”
