Vettel wins the Korean Grand prix for the third time.

Sebastian_Vettel-Korean_GP-R01Lotus scores an  excellent result  with Raikkonen second and Grosjean third while Hulkenberg matches his career-best result with a superb fourth for Sauber, fending off Hamilton and Alonso to the last.

Rosberg takes seventh, from Button, Massa and Perez after having a front wing change.

This result means that Vettel could in theory wrap up the World title in Japan in a week’s time, but Alonso will be out there to stop him.
