China 2009 - Race results // Vettel wins for Red Bull in a safety car hit race in Shanghai

Published by Christine

Sebastian Vettel led from the start in a very wet race, and took the chequered flag. Meanwhile, Robert Kubica and Jarno Trulli crashed, bringing out the safety car. Fernando Alonso made a bad strategy choice and the slow period saw him having to work through the field. Felipe Massa also retired when his Ferrari just slowed to a stop out on track.
