With back-to-back wins at Monaco, and Barcelona last week, he’d said, before again starting from poll position, he’d be looking fior a “nice clean race”.

After the race, he called it “a very rewarding win” on the “greatest day of his life”.

His Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel was placed second.

Elsewhere, road cyclist Cadel Evans won another leg of the ongoing Tour of Italy, and the Australian cricket team lost out to England – by seven wickets – in the final of the 20-20 World Cup in Barbados; (they said that although disappointed on the day they were glad to have improved in the 20-20 version of the game).
