May 8 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel extended his championship lead from 21 to 34 points by running away with victory in the Turkish grand prix.

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.
