Vettel keeps himself in contention

Sebastian Vettel kept himself in contention for the F1 title after winning the Japanese Grand prix over the weekend.

I thought Vettel had a superb drive dominating from start to finish and he was also the pole setter.

The current leader Jenson Button could only get a point and I think it could have been worse had Adrian Sutil and Heikki Kovalainen not collided.

I think Button still has a big chance of winning and lets remember that he was pushed back five places after qualifying.

He can win the title in Brazil if he finishes third or better or Vettel finishes lower than second and Rubens Barrichello finishes lower than fourth or alternatively if he outscores Barrichello by four points.

So thats a whole heap of combinations but as we saw in Japan there can so some surprise spoilers.

Another huge achievement in the race was seeing Toyota's Jarno Trulli finishing ahead of current champion Lewis Hamilton. It was a huge result for Toyota especially in Japan.

Just outside the podium places was Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen who will be leaving the team at the end of the season to be replaced by Fernando Alonso.

In fifth place was Williams' Nico Rosberg and then followed by Nick Heidfeld which is a good result for BMW Sauber given that they have been struggling this whole season.

The last two points places went to Brawn with Barrichello ahead of Button.

Giancarlo Fisichella was 12th this time and he has now two races to score points for Ferrari.

This was a race to forget for Mark Webber as he finished last for the cars that finished the race.

The next race will be in Brazil and so lets waits and see who will fall out of the championship race.
