Malaysia, the 4th of April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Following the two failures to convert qualifying form into race wins at Bahrain and Melbourne, Vettel finally ‘got the monkey off his back’ by completely outclassing the field in Sepang to take his first win of the year. Vettel’s teammate in the Red Bull racing outfit, Mark Webber came in second after starting the race from pole position.

In overcast conditions, with talk of rain on the horizon, Vettel led from the off as he instigated a brilliant passing manoeuvre from third place on the grid, sneaking past Mercedes Nico Rosberg before slipping by teammate Webber on the inside to enter the first corner in the lead. Vettel maintained the position throughout the race, much to the anguish of Webber who is still looking for his first win in the Formula One after many years of disappointments and unreliable vehicles.

Vettel’s sheer delight at the win was evident as he zig-zagged his way to the finish line ahead of Webber. On the podium the young German proceeded to gulp down the champagne, stating after the ceremony “I took too much champagne on the podium but I’m certainly feeling great.”

Vettel started from pole in both Bahrain and Melbourne but only managed to get a total of 12 points. “We did not finish where we wanted to be in the first two races but it was important not to panic. Today, sitting here on a Sunday afternoon, we got the result we wanted and it’s a great day for the team.”

Commenting on the race and the humid conditions on-track, Vettel stated; “We were a bit quicker than our competitors but the conditions were still hard. I did not stop sweating but luckily, I had not run out on my drinks. In fact, I was hoping for rain at some point to cool down,”

Out of the 24 cars, seven did not finish the race, including seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.
