Vettel all the way again in Malaysia

6:11 am on 11 April 2011

The world motor racing champion Sebastien Vettel maintained his perfect start to the formula one season with another all-the-way win in last night's Malaysian Grand Prix.

It was another brilliant drive by the 23 year old German, despite being handicapped by a faulty KERS system which gave his teammate Mark Webber a nightmare start.

Vettel took the chequered flag three seconds ahead of Jenson Button with a distance back to the next three, Nick Heidfeld, Webber and Felipe Massa.

Former world champions Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton were given 20 second penalties after they collided during a battle for third place late in the race.

Alonso held onto 6th place, but Hamilton's penalty dropped him one place to 8th.
