6:02 am on 23 May 2011

The reigning world motor racing champion Sebastian Vettel has won the Spanish formula one Grand Prix, making it four wins from five races this season.

The 23-year-old German edged out McLaren's 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton by less than a second after a thrilling duel over the closing laps.

Hamilton's team-mate Jenson Button was third, Australia's Mark Webber finished fourth after starting on pole, and the rest of the field was lapped.

Vettel now has 118 championship points and he leads Hamilton by 41 points.
