Posted on October 16, 2011 by


Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber secured spots on the podium at today’s Korean Grand Prix, giving Red Bull Racing-Renault its second consecutive constructors’ world title.

Vettel took his tenth win of the year, over 12 seconds ahead of Lewis Hamilton, with Webber just one second further behind.

Head of Renault Sport F1 track operations, Rémi Taffin said: “We are naturally delighted to have helped Red Bull Racing to the constructors’ title today. Even though there have been a lot of wins this season, each point has been hard fought and we’ve had to keep focussed for each race and not take anything for granted.”

The next race will take place in two weeks time in India.
