Vettel wins European Grand Prix

Apologies, I couldn’t find a photo somehow for this race. Sorry.

Sebastian Vettel won the European Grand Prix in Valencia, Spain, for his sixth win this season. The Red Bull driver beat Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso by about 11 seconds in scorching 115˚ Fahrenheit weather. Vettel’s teammate Mark Webber finished third, landing the last spot on the podium. Canadian Grand Prix winner Jenson Button finished a disappointing sixth. McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton rebounded and finished fourth. The German, Vettel, extended his lead and with Webber’s fine finish, Red Bull Racing increased their lead in the team points table, which is below. Spain is the only country this year to host two Formula One races, as the country hosted the Barcelona Grand Prix earlier this year. The next F1 race is on July 10th, with the British Grand Prix.
