Sebastian Vettel has scored his second career win – and given Red Bull their first Formula 1 victory.

Just as he did for Toro Rosso at Monza last year, Vettel gave the team their first pole position yesterday and was rarely headed in the wet race.

Team mate Mark Webber took second, handing Red Bull a maiden one-two as well.

The Milton Keynes-based team, formerly known as Stewart and Jaguar, has been in F1 since 2005.

Johnny Herbert won the 1999 European Grand Prix for Stewart the Nurburgring, but this is the first win for the team since it became Red Bull.
