The Brazilian Grand Prix was expected to produce drama, and Interlagos didn't disappoint after an action-packed season finale ended with Sebastian Vettel breaking another F1 record as the youngest triple champion in the history of the sport.
Vettel was forced to fight back with a damaged car from the rear of the field after a clash on lap one, but a sixth place finish was enough for the German to lift the title, with a fine second place from championship rival Fernando Alonso not enough for the Spaniard to overturn the 13 point deficit there was prior to the start.
The race itself was won by Jenson Button, who once again showed his prowess in damp conditions to make a gamble of staying on slick tyres work in the early stages – leaving him well clear of the chasing pack along with the impressive Nico Hulkenberg, who looked like he could give Force India a first win for a long spell out front.
Although Hulkenberg would drop back after a clash with Lewis Hamilton, which out the McLaren man out of his final race with the team, the German still showed why he is viewed as potential champion of the future…
Elsewhere, there was an emotional podium from Felipe Massa in front of his adoring fans, points for Michael Schumacher on his F1 farewell and a season's best from Vitaly Petrov that gave Caterham the all-important tenth spot in the constructors championship.
But which driver is most deserving of the award of top man at Interlagos?
