Vettel jumps out the car and celebrates immediately with his team. Hamilton and Button park up alongside the Red Bull to complete the podium.

Button tells Hamilton he had "the most boring race stuck behind Kobayashi".

A very strong fourth place for Barrichello ahead of Kubica and Sutil.

Thank you for joining us today for the European Grand Prix, we will be back in two weeks time for the British round of the championship. Make sure you join us.

Lap 57

Vettel starts his final lap. Just 3.8 seconds up on Hamilton but comfortably in the lead.

And he crosses the line for victory.

Kobayshi beats Buemi into the final corner to take seventh place, a brilliant move.

But a very strong drive for Vettel too after coming under attack from Hamilton at the start and after the safety car.

Button finished third but a 20 second peanalty for speeding under safety car conditions could drop him down the order. But we'll leave that decision to the stewards. Make sure you keep checking back to ESPN F1 to find out what happens.

Lap 56

Kobayashi is now closing on Alonso and is on fresh tyres to try and attempt a pass. Ahead of Alonso Buemi locks up into the final corner and comes under attack from both the Ferrari and the Sauber. Kobayashi has a run at Alonso into turn 17 and passes him. A brilliant move, making the most of his fresh tyres.

Lap 55

Schumacher sets another fastest lap back in 16th but that is immediately beaten by Button. Button is now in clear air and is trying to put in some quick laps in case he is hit with a post-race time penalty for speeding under safety car conditions

Lap 54

Kobayashi comes back out in ninth place behind Alonso, so he made good use of the clear air at the front of the field to leapfrog his team-mate and several other cars. A good strategy call by Sauber.

Lap 53

Vettel sets the fastest lap of the race with his last attempt - 1:39.141. Still no sign of Kobayashi pitting, he'll have to do it soon. As I type the Sauber mechanics come out into the pit and Kobayashi comes in.
