Vettel cruises to Turkish GP win

Posted: 08 May 2011 07:39 AM PDT

ISTANBUL (AP): Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel easily won the Turkish Grand Prix on Sunday, clinching his third win of the season ahead of his teammate Mark Webber and extending his overall lead.

The Formula One champion was in trouble at Istanbul Park after starting from pole position for the fourth consecutive time.

Red Bull started 1-2 on the grid and Webber passed Spanish driver Fernando Alonso late on in an exciting race that saw a lot of bumping and overtaking early on, and where the top four drivers all made four tyre changes.

Alonso was third, giving Ferrari its first podium this season. Vettel won the opening two races and finished second behind McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in China last month.

Hamilton never challenged for the lead and finished fourth.
