F1's second-ever visit to Korea passed off without much of the concern that dogged 2010's inaugural event in Yeongam, and appeared to strengthen the sport's foothold in the country.

Coming just a week after the regular visit to Japan, and hot on the heels of a scintillating race that produced both a popular winner and the outcome to this year's championship race, Korea had a hard act to follow but, while perhaps lacking the tension of Suzuka, still had its moments of excitement.

Who, though, shone brightest in what quickly became another race against the light at Korea International Circuit?

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

Sebastian Vettel:
Failed to steal pole position this time, but that was no impediment to perhaps his most imperious drive of the season. Snatched the lead at turn four on the opening lap and was never seen again. Threw in fastest lap for the hell of it at the end..

Lewis Hamilton:
Finally broke the Red Bull stranglehold on pole position, but then made a slight error that allowed Vettel to take a lead he would not use. Drove strongly to keep Mark Webber from making it an RBR 1-2. Appeared oddly subdued despite his apparent return to form.

Mark Webber:
Qualified fourth, finished third, harassing Hamilton all the way to the line after feeling that team had mis-read strategy that could have produced 1-2 result. Points enough to secure constructors' title.

Jenson Button:
Unable to repeat his Suzuka success, but battled back from being bundled down the order on lap one to be a podium threat in the closing laps

Fernando Alonso:
Delayed behind Ferrari team-mate Massa in crucial early stages before mounting charge towards the top three late on.

Jaime Alguersuari:
Revelled in 'best Toro Rosso ever' to run in top ten throughout. Punched above weight in several battles before 'knocking out' Mercedes' Nico Rosberg on final lap to claim 'best of rest' seventh..

These are just a few options - and probably the most obvious ones - for you to choose from, but feel free tell us who you think was the top driver in Korea, using the link below.
