Jenson Button

With teams struggling to conserve the fast-wearing Pirelli tyres in race trim, it probably didn't come as a surprise that Button's renowned smooth driving style helped him clinch the race win. Almost a home win as well, considering the support he had thanks to his relationship with long-time girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

Jenson Button 1st: With teams struggling to conserve the fast-wearing Pirelli tyres in race trim, it probably didn't come as a surprise that Button's renowned smooth driving style helped him clinch the race win. Almost a home win as well, considering the support he had thanks to his relationship with long-time girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

Fernando Alonso 2nd: The other Ferrari of Felipe Massa finished seventh while Alonso was within two seconds of a race win. Such is the value of the former double world champion who will be hoping that Ferrari were serious about the 'aggressive' design of next year's car.

Sebastian Vettel 3rd: Didn't get the battle, but won the war for the drivers' world championship in far more convincing fashion than last year. Will now be contesting the remaining four rounds of the championship with the aim to equal Michael Schumacher's win record from 2004.

Lewis Hamilton 5th: A punctured tyre and the renewal of his bitter rivalry with Massa meant that Hamilton couldn't challenge for the race win that many had tipped him to snatch following an encouraging qualifying session.

Michael Schumacher 6th: Benefited from Kamui Kobayashi's bad start and Massa's inability to pass him at the end to score eight championship points and close to within three points of Nico Rosberg. At the same point last year, he trailed Rosberg by 76 points. What a difference a year makes.
