Once Vettel crossed the finish line, he exclaimed and shouted that "We took nothing for granted and we did it!". Vettel is now in an unbeatable position with 114 points.

Button is now eight points ahead of Alonso in the competition for best-of-the-rest in which Webber and Hamilton are dropping away slightly.

Vettel's team-mate Mark Webber completed in 4th place whereas McLaren's Lewis Hamilton completed 5th.

The great racer Michael Schumacher took over the lead from Button and completed at 7th place for Mercedes GP.

Sebastien Buemi of Toro Rosso was forced to retire from the Japanese Grand Prix when his left front wheel and tyre came off after a stop.

Overall, it was a breathtaking race at Suzuka with Vettel clearly being the happiest person after claiming his 2nd title.
