Sebastian Vettel takes the season closing Grand Prix making it nine for nine, securing victories in all races ever since the summer break was over. The race was dry, against all predictions of rain, and it made for a fairly straight forward job for the German in his usual fashion, taking off from Pole position into the lead and eventual win.
Mark Webber was second for Red Bull in his final Formula One race. An emotional goodbye, the team and paddock bid the Australian farewell. He finishes the year third in the drivers championship.
Fernando Alonso held on to his starting position at third to complete the podium.
Jenson Button took fourth place, ending McLaren’s year on a relative high, after all the disappointing performances.
Full race report coming soon and post-season round-up.
