Sebastian Vettel wins the 2011 Turkish Grand Prix

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2011

The 2011 Turkish Grand Prix was won by Sebastian Vettel, who didn’t allow his jarring loss last year to affect his focus. From pole position, Vettel already secured first place. He was in the lead through the finish line.

What went on behind him though was very exciting. At the beginning, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso snagged fourth place but McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton ran wide while attempting to overtake Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg.

Alonso was able to overtake Rosberg and he soon fell behind Mark Webber for second place, which he later gained after the second round of pit stops.

But Webber was able to wrestle second place away from Alonso when there had only been five laps left and after they both made their third pit stops. Alonso took third place, right before McLaren’s duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Rosberg may have had an awesome start but he only got sixth place.

Meanwhile, Renault was able to have its two drivers get inside points for the first time this season. Nick Heidfeld took seventh place ahead of teammate Vitaly Petrov.

Coming in at ninth is Sebastien Buemi who had an excellent pit stop strategy and who posted his second point scoring finish of the season. The tenth place went to Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber F1. This means that the names that were glaringly left out of the top 10 are Felipe Massa and Michael Schumacher.
