It was a bittersweet podium ceremony in Shanghai not only for Red Bull, but also the team's grand prix winner Sebastian Vettel.

We have already reported that whoever was in charge of the post-race ceremony at the Shanghai International Circuit played the wrong national anthem to mark the Austrian energy drink-owned constructor's win.

Instead of the Austrian song 'Land der Berge, Land am Strome' being played to honour owner Dietrich Mateschitz, the loudspeakers instead proclaimed 'God Save The Queen', presumably because while Red Bull races with an Austrian license, the team is based in Milton-Keynes.

Bild newspaper, meanwhile, reports that 21-year-old German Vettel sustained a slight injury on the podium as he handled his winner's trophy.

Photos show the Red Bull driver sucking the side of his thumb, and he revealed to the German publication: "When I was raising the cup, I cut myself, no big deal.

"I put on a sticking plaster and still went to the party," he joked.
