As his closest competitor Lewis Hamilton raced only to fourth place at Istanbul Park, Red Bull's German returned to the top step of the podium over his teammate Mark Webber.

Also returning to form in Turkey was Fernando Alonso, who secured Ferrari's first podium of the 2011 season.

"Finally we enjoy racing again," said the Spaniard.

Read a report at Ferrari's official website: "This is a reward for all the hard work the team has carried out, which gives hope for the next round in Spain."
