Lewis Hamilton wins Turkey Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton blasted reckless Sebastian Vettel - as the Brit exploded back into the championship reckoning with a real racer's victory in Turkey.

The 2008 champion ended his barren run with his first win of the season - and was once again the star of the Formula 1 show.

But it was not without explosive drama as he banged wheels with team-mate Jenson Button to re-take the lead, after Vettel drove his own team-mate off the circuit at 160mph to wreck Red Bull's chances of a one-two finish.

The Red Bulls' collision ended in mangled kevlar and broken dreams as Mark Webber's chance of a third successive victory disintegrated on the spot. Vettel was sent spinning and Webber pushed off the circuit, handing relentless pursuer Hamilton a deserved win.

And with Button on his heels it made for a sweet day at Woking.

More so because the simmering tension at their Milton Keynes' rivals exploded into open warfare as each blamed the other and Aussie Webber rightly branded the day a "f**king disaster".

Vettel refused to own up to his mistake and instead of moving to a 43-point lead in the constructor's championship Red Bull trail McLaren by one.

Webber limped home third to extend his championship lead by five points but a one-two lifted Button to second and Hamilton four places to third in the title chase.
