After just two races in the 2011 Formula 1 season the big question is – who can stop defending world champion Sebastian Vettel?

Red Bull’s Vettel was in a class of his own to win a dramatic Malaysian Grand Prix. McLaren’s Jenson Button was runner-up to go second in the championship and Renault’s Nick Heidfeld was third.

In the overall standings Button moves ahead of team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who survived a late clash with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso as they disputed third and the 2008 Champion finished seventh behind Alonso after a late tyre stop.

Britain’s former world champions Hamilton and Button will surely push Vettel all the way. But it’s hard to bet against the 23-year-old German who became the youngest ever world champion in November

Overall standing: 1, Vettel – 50 pts; 2, Button – 26 pts; 3, Hamilton – 24 pts.
