U.S. Grand Prix (2013): RESULT
Sebastian Vettel was motivated enough in qualifying to snatch pole position from team mate Mark Webber – for a Red Bull front row – but was he motivated enough, even with the drivers title already won, to take a win at the 2013 American Grand Prix in Austin, Texas? Oh, yes. In fact, the US Grand Prix was another Vettel procession, with the seemingly unbeatable German out front to the end in another imperious victory.
Webber’s pitch for the win faltered from the off with a poor start, but he managed to hold on well enough to take third place, but a Red Bull one-two was spoilt by Romain Grosjean, who put in another strong performance for Lotus to take second place.
Lewis Hamilton managed to put his Mercedes in fourth place – despite sometimes sounding like he wasn’t too sure what was going on – and Fernando Alonso managed an almost respectable – but not good enough – fifth place for Ferrari, just ahead of Hulkenberg in the Sauber.
Sergio Perez managed seventh place – beating team mate Jenson Button for the third time in as many races- as Button struggled to tenth place from his poor qualifying. with Bottas doing Williams proud with an eighth place and Nico Rosberg managing ninth for Mercedes.
But it was another opposition crushing win for Sebastian Vettel, who was head and shoulders above the rest.
Let’s hope he has more competition in 2014.
