Vettel wins Japanese GP

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel has won the Japanese Grand Prix (GP), edging closer to another world championship.

The German has a 90-point lead over Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who finished fourth in Japan, with only 100 still available and he needs a top-five finish in the next race in India to be absolutely sure of the title.

It was Vettel’s fifth win in a row in a perfectly executed race, where he somehow avoided front-wing damage after coming together with Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on the run down to the first corner – the collision would later force Hamilton’s retirement.

“I’m blown away with today’s race,” Vettel said afterwards. “I had a very, very poor start. I clipped a little bit the front-wing, I couldn’t go anywhere.

“We looked after the tyres and had incredible pace towards the end.”
