Red Bull's Vettel wins Chinese Grand Prix

German Sebastian Vettel gave Red Bull their first Formula One win with a pole to chequered flag victory ahead of team mate Mark Webber in the rain-soaked Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday.
The 21-year-old claimed the second victory of his career with Australian Webber taking the best result of his career in a Red Bull one-two on a track that resembled a skidpan for much of the race.
Briton Jenson Button, who won the first two races of the season, finished third to extend his championship lead to six points over Brawn GP team mate Rubens Barrichello, who was fourth.
Heavy rainfall meant the first eight laps of the race were run behind the safety car, which returned on lap 20 after one of the string of collisions and crashes in the race left debris strewn over the track.
Champions Ferrari again failed to score.
