2011 Turkish GP – Race Result

Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing eased to a comfortable win in the Turkish GP today, with Mark Webber in second making it the team’s first 1-2 of this season. The pole sitter was in complete control of the race and led almost every lap, reasserting his domination of this year’s championship. Fernando Alonso drove a fantastic race to haul the Ferrari up onto the final podium slot, getting his and the team’s first top 3  finish of 2011. He spent most of the race in second, before Mark Webber used his fresh set of tyres to overtake him with 7 laps remaining.

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton finished fourth, after a torrid race for the Woking squad, full of mistakes and mishaps both in the pits and on the track. Team mate Jenson Button, on a three-stop strategy compared to the four stoppers chosen by all the other top runners, lost a couple of places at the end to end up sixth. It was a day to forget for the team, instead of fighting for the win, they ended the race far behind the Red Bulls and Alonso. Rosberg ran second at the start, but was quickly passed by the McLarens and could only manage a fifth place. His team mate suffered a desperate race hitting everything on track en route to 12th at the finish line.

The two Renaults did very well to get 7th and 8th places, ahead of the highly impressive duo of Buemi and Kobayashi, who took the final points paying positions from the back of the grid. Massa had yet another poor race to 11th, a sign of the wretched form he is in at the moment. Force India, Sauber and Williams spent the whole race battling hard and filled in the remaining places. Paul di Resta was the sole retirement of the day, with unspecified problems, while Timo Glock did not even start the race after having gearbox trouble on the way to the grid.

Full analysis to follow shortly. Here are the race results :
