The Japanese Grand Prix

The weather was perfect in Japan for a race day and for celebrations, the race started turbulently as Button was pushed out onto the grass as a blind Vettel
aggressively defended his position into the first corner. Hamilton took advantage of the start and moved into second place but was ultimately beaten by a
puncture, Hamilton's race was dragged into the dirt further by a clumsy mistake causing an entanglement with Massa again, an on running occurance through
out this season. Luckily for Massa it was seemingly cosmetic but the sharp shards of carbon fibre forced the saftey car onto the grid compacting the field up
once more. Overall the race was relatively incident free, Toro Rosso's Buemi had to retire due to a wheel being incorrectly fitted and Webber losing his
wing in contact with Michael Schumacher.

In the end though Button's amazing performance on the track won out and he was able to win Suzuka for the first time and the emotion that was coursing
through him was evident as he stood on the top spot of the podium and of course not forgetting Sebastian Vettel who has now managed to claim the World
Championship with his third place, he is now one of the few drivers who has managed to have consecutive world championships. Vettel has had an amazing season,
his dominance on the track and his charisma are difficult to match and will take some serious hard work to beat in the 2012 Formula 1 season.

Only a week to go before the Korean Grand Prix I suspect there won't be any let off from Vettel, he will be pushing all out to claim these last few
victories to add to his collection unless Button, Alonso or Hamilton can get there first.
