2011 Grand Prix season so far

A quick recap of what we have seen on the track. More overtaking and more pit stops; and of course, an amazing Sebastian Vettel.

Both McLarens have been competitive. 

BARCELONA, May 19, 2011 (AFP) - Story of the 2011 Formula One season ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday:

Australian Grand Prix - March 27
World champion Sebastian Vettel sounded a warning to his rivals with a dominating victory in his flying Red Bull on the Albert Park street circuit in Melbourne. It was Vettel's 11th win in his 63rd GP. The German 23-year-old led his rivals a merry dance from pole, beating McLaren's 2008 champion Lewis Hamilton by more than 22 seconds with Russian
Vitaly Petrov third in a Lotus Renault.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso missed out on the podium in fourth place, while
Vettel's Australian team-mate Mark Webber finished fifth for the third time in his home GP.
Standings: Vettel 25pts, Hamilton 18, Petrov 15

Malaysian Grand Prix - April 4
Vettel dominated with a brilliant drive to maintain his perfect start to the season, steering his Red Bull from pole to the chequered flag to win ahead of McLaren's Jenson Button, the 2009 champion, and Nick Heidfeld who finished
third for Renault.

Vettel's second start-to-finish win in two outings this year came despite further problems with Red Bull's faulty Kinetic Energy Regeneration System (KERS) which gave Webber a nightmare start. The Australian dropped from third to 10th before storming back to finish fourth ahead of the Ferraris of Brazilian Felipe Massa and two-time champion Alonso.Hamilton looked set for a podium spot but finished seventh after a slow pit stop and a struggle with worn tyres in the closing stages, the Briton demoted to eighth after picking up a time penalty.
Standings: Vettel 50 pts, Button 26, Hamilton 22

Chinese Grand Prix - April 17
Vettel's invincibility came to a juddering halt as a brilliant drive from Hamilton saw him take the chequered flag after the 26-year-old roared through the field in the final laps on fresh tyres to take his 15th career win. Vettel finished second after one of his more unsatisfactory races, having been passed by Button on the first corner.

Webber also produced a remarkable drive, coming from 18th on the grid to finish third. Ferrari failed to shine as Felipe Massa finished sixth and Alonso seventh.
Standings: Vettel 68pts, Hamilton 47, Button 38

Turkish Grand Prix - May 8
Vettel claimed his third win in four races this season with a near-flawless drive. The German led from his 19th career pole position to the chequered flag unchallenged, conceding the lead only once during his pit-stops and now has a 34-point lead in the championship.

It was the 13th win of his career and another day of celebration for the Red Bull team as Webber brilliantly overtook two-time champion Fernando Alonso of Ferrari to finish second. Hamilton was fourth.
Standings: Vettel 93pts, 2. Hamilton 59, 3. Webber 55
