Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel returned to winning ways in Belgium.

With no win in three, Vettel returned from the summer break and extended his lead at the top of the 2011 Formula One drivers standings.

But while realistically, the German driver has all but claimed his second title, the Red Bull driver will not become complacent.

‘If you are out in two races and someone else has a good couple of races, it could change, So all we do is try to get the optimum every time. There are seven races to go, There are still a lot of points available. Vettel told the BBC after winning the Belgian Grand Prix.

The win was the defending champions seventh win of the season and it gives him a 92-point lead over Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber and a 102-point lead over Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso who is third in the standings.

Vettel added: ‘It’s our seventh win, our 12th pole, we’ve got a 100% finishing record, but we don’t underestimate our rivals and there’ll be no complacency and heads down focused on the next race. We won’t change our approach.’
