7:08 am on 17 October 2011

The double world motor racing champion Sebastian Vettel won the Korean Grand Prix yesterday to secure the Formula One Constructors title for his Red Bull team.

The 24-year-old German was uncatchable as he drove to his 10th win this year, and 20th of his career.

Vettel started second on the grid, but took the lead from Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap to pull clear and produce a flawless drive to the chequered flag.

He showed he has no intention of easing off as he bids to equal Schumacher's record of 13 wins in a season.

The McLaren team hailed Hamilton's drive as one of his dazzling best as he held off Vettel's teammate Mark Webber for 30 of the 55 laps.
