Button's win can't prevent Vettel clinching title

Understandably, most of the attention during the race had been on the battle for the race lead and the championship battle, and as the sun set over Suzuka it had proved a most rewarding outcome all around: a great win for Button, an impressive show of form for Alonso - and of course, a second successive world championship for Vettel. There really had been something for everyone in Japan, and especially for the Japanese fans who had welcomed the F1 roadshow into town with such evident enthusiasm and joy after such a difficult year for the country.

The drivers' title might be a done deal and the constructors' battle pretty much a foregone conclusion, but the fight for race-by-race victories will continue as hard and fast and entertaining as ever, commencing with next week's Grand Prix of Korea.

Button cannot have won that race, everyone that knows anything about F1 knows he cannot win races in the dry! Put simply he is the master of tyre conservation which is very much a part of being a class act in F1, so to all you knockers, credit where credit is due, Button is really very good indeed and certainly the equal of his team mate.
