Vettel wins at Suzuka as Red Bull dominate

Michael Schumacher inherited sixth, the German finally getting ahead of his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg four laps from the flag. Rosberg crashed out at the S curves when he had some sort of mechanical problem. He walked away unharmed.

Kamui Kobayashi took a fantastic seventh charging up the order after his pit stop on lap 39, which dropped him to 12th. The Japanese driver first went round the outside of Jaime Alguersuari at the hairpin. Despite banging wheels - after Alguersuari refused to yield, he pushed on and almost immediately found himself up to P10 when the engine on Adrian Sutil's Force India let go. Kobayashi then passed Rubens Barrichello and his Sauber team-mate Nick Heidfeld to collect another six points.

Heidfeld and Barrichello came in eighth and ninth followed by Sebastien Buemi, who took the final point in tenth.

Alguersuari had to settle for P11 after having to pit, a result of his coming together with Kobayashi, while Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli were 12th and 13th for Lotus, the team's fifth 1-2 finish of the season. Kovalainen's 12th more significantly was also the Norfolk-based outfit's best result of the year and all but guarantees the team victory in the battle with Virgin for the new teams honours.

Timo Glock came in 14th for Virgin, 2 laps down like Trulli and Bruno Senna, who headed home the Hispania's in 15th and 16th. Sakon Yamamoto took the chequered flag in front of his native fans, albeit 3 laps adrift. Rosberg was the last of the classified runners in 17th, despite crashing out late on.

The F1 2010 World Championship now heads to Korea for round 17, with the event supposedly scheduled to take place on October 24. After that just Brazil and Abu Dhabi remain...

Whats this? No Schumacher should retire thread? No piece on how Schumacher is past his best? No soundbites from some ridiculous nutter like Jordan or some disgruntled thrashed ex-teammate? Wow, so Schumacher has a very good race and suddenly crash has nothing to write about. Next year will be pretty boring on here for all the bashers with Schumi getting back to his best. Rosberg tried his best to ruin Schumi's race today and Schumi was much quicker to whole time but got stuck in the turbulent air... Unfortunate for Rosberg that his car broke though, had had a solid race

I'd like to change the subject a bit,if that's okay. I can't fault the podium finishers,but who was everybody's driver of the day?I would have to say Kobayashi because of those entertaining passes.Pity he's in a mediocre car!
