Two for two for Seb

Sebastian Vettel held off Jenson Button to take his second victory of the season in Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.

Tires play a deciding role as Button was able to challenge by 19 laps on the primes while his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, was forced to take a fourth stop.

Nick Heidfeld came in third, proving Renault's speed in Melbourne was no fluke.

KERS-less Mark Webber was fourth and Felipe Massa was the best of the Ferraris in fifth.

A spirited battle between Hamilton and Fernando Alonso resulted in both drivers having 20 seconds added to their race times by the stewards: Hamilton for blocking and Alonso for causing a collision.

Alonso remains in sixth but Hamilton's penalty drops him to eighth behind Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi, who once again was one of the most exciting drivers on the circuit. Mixing it up with the likes of Webber and Schumacher, Kobayashi delivered Sauber's first points of the season following its Australia disqualification.

Vettel and Red Bull are solidly in control of both championships as the series now moves on to China.
