Vettel: Button was unbeatable

Sebastian Vettel says he was happy to come away with second in the Australian GP after a disappointing qualifying for Red Bull Racing.

Having dominated Saturday afternoons for most of last season, Vettel found himself down in sixth place on the Melbourne starting grid alongside his team-mate Mark Webber.

However, the defending World Champ seemed to have better race-pace in Sunday's 58-lap grand prix and worked his way up to second place.

And although he finished just two seconds behind race winner Jenson Button, Vettel reckons there was no chance of him beating the McLaren driver who at one stage held a lead of over 12 seconds.

"Congratulations to McLaren and Jenson, he drove a fantastic race," Vettel said in the post-race press conference.

"He was unbeatable today, but I am happy to come away with second place. A lot of people did not expect it after yesterday.

"It was a positive race, one we knew would be difficult. So, to finish second with a lot of points is important."

He added: "The car has a lot of potential. I would have loved to be in a better position yesterday (in qualifying).

"Now we need to address problems and make sure that we give them a harder time next week."
