Sebastian Vettel Wins Brazilian Grand Prix

The Formula One world championship may have been decided but there were still pertinent points to be made at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari had seen the title slip away but managed to lay down their marker for next season with a commanding victory at Interlagos. Lewis Hamilton, with his fourth F1 championship already under his belt, gave his all for fourth place here after starting in the pitlane, delivering a strident reminder to his rivals that his pace and racecraft are at an absolute peak.

The win will be of some solace for Vettel and Ferrari. He had said on Saturday that they would have “failed” if they did not secure second place in the championship, behind Hamilton. He was 15 points ahead of Bottas and now goes into the final round in Abu Dhabi with a 22-point lead and that place almost assured Vettel won at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, a commanding performance to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas into second, with Kimi Raikkonen taking third. Hamilton, crowned champion in Mexico, had crashed in qualifying but fought back with a determined and aggressive drive.
