F1: Lewis Hamilton takes victory as Red Bull face disaster

A first for both driver and team as 2008 champion Lewis Hamilton stormed his McLaren to victory in the Turkish Grand Prix followed by Jenson Button.

Mark Webber grabbed third on the podium for the Red Bulls but only after Sebastian Vettel attempted to undertake the Australian and in doing so, made contact and forced himself out of the race.

Before the drama unfolded, the Red Bull cars simulated two fighter pilots, simply cruising round in formation closely followed by the McLarens.

Unfortunately for both Vettel and Webber, the German tried to take Webber on the inside of a left turn and as Webber clearly didn't want to give up track position, Vettel tried to force his way thorough and damaged both Red Bull cars to the dismay of the pit crew.

Vettel then had no choice but to retire as Webber had to sacrifice his lead and come in for a nose change.

From then on it was all about the McLarens who then decided to go toe-to-toe in a series of scintillating turns, the lead changing hands a number of times within a few corners but it was Lewis Hamilton who got the upper hand before team orders forced the McLarens to calm down and not recreate the Red Bull disaster.

Today, Vettel and Webber got it all wrong, McLaren got it all right, and even Michael Schumacher managed to grab P4.

Mark Webber still leads the drivers' championship with Jenson Button in second and Lewis Hamilton in third, but the constructors top three order ahs now changed with McLaren 172pts Red Bull 171pts and Ferrari 146pts.
