Another big win scored by Casio watches fan

First published: 02-11-2009

A Casio watches fan and ambassador was a winner this weekend at Formula One's first ever day and night race.

Sebastian Vettel became the first champion of the new format at Abu Dhabi's £800 million Yas Marina circuit, making it a one-two for Red Bull as his partner Mark Webber pulled past the line in second.

The victory was Vettel's fourth win of the season, ahead of F1 championship winner Jenson Button who came a well-deserved third after a long battle with Webber for the second podium place.

Vettel became a Casio watches ambassador before the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, with the racer saying of the Edifice: "Time is very important for me but to be honest, the best thing about this watch is the alarm clock, as I get in trouble if I'm late for work!"

Despite qualifying in first place before the race, Lewis Hamilton was unable to hang onto his stellar form when it mattered, retiring after lap 21.
