Vettel said, 'I'm very happy the car is fast already and hoping it gets better and better throughout the season. A double win for Red Bull is incredible.'
The race was littered with incidents caused by aquaplaning and poor visibility. Lewis Hamilton's spirited drive to sixth was hindered by five off road excursions, Force India's Adrian Sutil crashed out of seventh, and Robert Kubica's BMW rode over Jarno Trulli's Toyota.
World championship leader Jenson Button struggled to get temperature into his tyres but salvaged third – albeit forty seconds behind the winner. This increases Button's points total to twenty-one and his championship lead over Rubens Barrichello to six. Brawn GP lead the constructor's championship with thirty-six points. The Formula 1 circus now heads to Bahrain.
