Who was the star of Suzuka?

Give us your views on who was the top driver in the Japanese Grand Prix
Just four rounds remain in F1 2011 after the Japanese Grand Prix, where the championship title was won and where one man maintained his recent run of strong form with a fifth straight trip to the podium…

The Suzuka race is one of the most popular of the season and took on added significance this year given it was the first time F1 had visited the country following the devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier in the year.

The field duly put on a show for the watching fans but what we want to know now is who was your star of Suzuka?

Let us know your thoughts using the links below, but we've given you a few suggestions to get you going…

Jenson Button:
Had to win to keep his title hopes alive and duly ended up on the top step of the podium, even if it wasn't enough to deny Sebastian Vettel the championship crown. Another podium for the form man on the grid.

Fernando Alonso:
Ferrari had suggested it was behind Red Bull and McLaren on pace having turned focus towards 2012 but Alonso was still able to secure his place on the second step of the podium to keep the pressure on Button in the title race.

Sebastian Vettel:
Became the youngest man to be a double F1 champion – need we say more?

Sergio Perez:
A strong drive saw the Mexican come through the field from 17th on the grid to take eight and his second straight points finish

Nico Rosberg:
Failed to set a time in Q1 with a mechanical issue but battled back to finish inside the top ten on race day

Team Lotus:
Neither Heikki Kovalainen or Jarno Trulli were lapped, which says something about the progress being made by the team this season.

So there are a few possible options for you to choose from – but tell us who you think was the top driver in Japan using the link below.
