Christian Horner heaps praise upon two-time world champion Sebastian Vettel following his third-place finish at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has described Sebastian Vettel's podium finish in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as "unbelievable".

The German started from the back of the grid due to yesterday's qualifying penalty, but tore through the pack to claim an unlikely third-placed finish.

The result means that Vettel still leads Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who finished second, by 10 points in the drivers' championship.

When asked about Vettel's performance by Sky Sports News, Horner responded: "Unbelievable. To start in the pit lane, but not only that, he had to change wing.

"I think he had some damage on the first lap when he touched a Williams - and then behind the safety car there was more damage done to the wing.

"So to have to change that, to go to the back of the field again, and come all the way through... he just drove an unbelievable race tonight."

Kimi Raikkonen recorded his first victory since the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix.
