With so many great pictures appearing on Crash.net over an F1 weekend it can be hard to keep track. So, here we bring you ten pictures that sum up the rain-affected title deciding 2012 F1 Brazilian Grand Prix, no mean feat given all that went on...

Enjoy...

Lewis Hamilton starts strong from pole position...
...in contrast, championship leader, Sebastian Vettel has a nightmare and after a collision with Bruno Senna in Turn 4, drops right to the back of the pack. Luckily for him he can continue and the tricky conditions will work to his benefit...
Jenson Button passes Lewis Hamilton on lap 8 and moves up into the lead...
Button and Nico Hulkenberg both opt to stay out on slicks, while all their rivals pit for intermediates. Hulkenberg passes JB for the lead on lap 20...
With too much debris on the track the Safety Car is deployed on lap 23, and suddenly Hulkenberg and Button lose their hard fought 40-second buffer...
At the re-start, Hamilton goes on a charge and soon passes Button. He also gets Hulkenberg on lap 48 when the German has a half-spin. Nico fights back but his move into Turn 1 on lap 55 proves his undoing, ending his hopes of winning and sending Hamilton into retirement...
Button inherits the lead and as the race starts heading to its conclusion, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa now lie second and third. Vettel however, has battled his way back up the order and is looking good for the title...
More rain falls near the end and the race finishes under the Safety Car when Paul di Resta hits the wall on the penultimate lap...
Button takes the final win of the season, but second place is not enough for Alonso to take the title...
Instead Vettel does enough by finishing sixth to claim his third crown, cue the celebrations by Red Bull
