Sebastian Vettel saw off the challenge of Red Bull team mate Mark Webber at Suzuka on Sunday afternoon to claim his fifth consecutive win.

Sebastian_Vettel-Red_BullVettel lay third behind Webber and Lotus’s Romain Grosjean for much of the race, but moved ahead after taking on fresh rubber at his second pit stop. However, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished fourth to prevent the German clinching a fourth title.

Behind Alonso was his future Ferrari team-mate Raikkonen in fifth with Hulkenberg sixth. Gutierrez is seventh as he scores his first points in Formula One with Rosberg behind him. They are followed by Button and Massa.
