Vettel Streaks into Title Lead

World Champion Sebastian Vettel has won the 2011 Formula One Qantas Australian Grand Prix for Red Bull-Renault at Melbourne’s Albert Park.

Australia’s Mark Webber was fifth in the second Red Bull, equalling his best result in his home race.

Vettel started from pole and was never headed through the 58-lap race, beating McLaren-Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton by over 22 seconds to take the 11th Grand Prix victory of his career and his first in Australia.

Renault’s Vitaly Petrov was the surprise package with his first F1 podium in third place.
