Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel is happy to have won the Korean Grand Prix, but believes that he needs to remain focused despite taking a six-point lead over Fernando Alonso in the drivers' championship.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel has said that he was "very pleased" with his victory in the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday.

The German started second on the grid but eventually finished ahead of his teammate Mark Webber for his third win in a row.

"I'm very pleased," he said. "It's fantastic. The foundation was to have a good start.

"I wasn't sure because I was starting on the dirty side but I had a good launch and managed to get past Mark. But it wasn't over, it's a long way and even in seventh gear I could hear Mark coming.

"We were a bit worried about the front wheel because we've seen a lot of people locking up and overshooting the apexes. The team have been flat out on the car since Japan and that's what we need."

Vettel is now six points ahead of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in the Formula 1 drivers' championship but refuses to get carried away.

"I'm looking forward to next couple of races," said the 25-year-old. "A lot can happen but we need to focus on ourselves and go from there."

There are four races remaining this season.
