Germany Win Race of Champions With Schumacher and Vettel

Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel have won Germany their third straight Race Of Champions Nations Cup victory this afternoon.

The annual race-off between the best drivers of nations of the world was held in the Beijing Bird’s Nest stadium, which hosted the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

Germany raced against Great Britain in the final, with Schumacher beating Jenson Button in round 1, before Andy Priaulx beat Vettel in round 2.  The final race off between Schumacher and Priaulx led to Michael, the most successful F1 driver of all time, winning by over one second.

The home crowd had a good cheer for Ho-Pin Tung when he delivered a remarkable win over Mikko Hirvonen in the buggies.
