The third position at Suzuka has been obtained today by Sebastian Vettel, which makes him the youngest double champion in Formula One history. Great victory for Vettel, and not for him only. The Suzuka Grand Prix was won by McLaren’s Jenson Button in a totally dry race, who finished the race with just 1.1 seconds ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.
Vettel was closely followed by his teammate Mark Webber, who finished the race on the fourth position, Lewis Hamilton taking the fifth place and being closely followed by Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa.
Even though he obtained only the eighth position, followed by the Russian driver Vitaly Petrov (Renault), Sergio Perez (Sauber) managed to make the fastest lap using a brilliant two-stop strategy. Nico Rosberg took the final point for Mercedes.
The Japanese driver Kamui Kobayashi didn’t impress as he could only finish 13th for Sauber, behind the two Force India cars. Bruno Senna lost out on lap one and he finished the race on the 16th position. Toro Rosso’s Sebasetien Buemi was the only retirement of the race.
