Red Bull-Renault RB9
Strategy: 2 stops (soft/medium/medium)
While the Red Bull was comfortably the class of the field, this was a drive fitting of a champion. Vettel never looked like missing out on pole position, but the decision to dump the soft Pirellis after just two laps meant his strategy hung on him clearing slower cars swiftly.
That's far easier said than done, even in a quick car, but typically he made it look easy. A perfect drive topped off by his flamboyant celebration guarantees a maximum score.
