Dominant Vettel claims Malaysian Grand Prix for Red Bull

(CNN) -- Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel led from pole position to win the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang Sunday.

It was the second straight victory for the reigning Formula One world champion after he claimed the season-opener in Australia a fortnight ago.

Jenson Button finished second in his McLaren with Nick Heidfeld rewarded for his brilliant drive in the Renault with the final podium place.

Vettel's teammate Mark Webber of Australia made up ground after a poor start to finish fourth.

Veteran Heidfeld moved ahead of Button's teammate Lewis Hamilton into second position on the first corner and was always among the front runners through the pits stops.

It was the start of a disappointing afternoon for 2008 champion Hamilton, who trailed home seventh behind the Ferrari pair of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso in fifth and sixth.

But this was another dominant display by Germany's Vettel, who has now won fourth successive F1 races, claiming the final two of the 2010 season to wrap up the title.

He qualified in pole position and quickly opened up an advantage which he comfortably maintained without real challenge.

Vettel leads 2009 champion Button by 24 points in the drivers' standings with Hamilton a further two points adrift.
