Published by Christine

With so many pit stops, it was a hard race to keep track of, but the key point was that Sebastian Vettel started in front, and remained in front throughout. The McLaren boys struggled but kept up the pace to battle him, and it was another good day for Renault who get their second podium in as many races.
