Vettel World Champion

As Alonso was blocked behind Vitaly Petrov for lap after lap and Webber was trapped behind him, Sebastian Vettel streaked away to victory in front of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.

This makes Vettel the youngest ever F1 champion.

By any standards this has been an exciting season.  This was the first time Vettel has led the points table all year and what a time to do it.

The safety car deployed when Schumacher was taken out by Liuzzi gave opportunity for the two Renaults of Kubica and Petrov and the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg to jump in for tyres.

That was enough to destroy the race of both Massa and Webber who could not climb to better positions than 7th and 8th behind the two Renaults.  Rosberg came on fourth to compensate in some way for his team mate's retirement.

So that's it until March 11-13th, 2011 in Bahrain.

Next year there will be five world champions competing - Schumacher, Alonso, Button, Hamilton and now Vettel.

Maybe next year Webber will become the sixth.
