Could Vettel still catch up to Button in the Drivers Championship with only 2 races to go and clinch the title in Dubai? Who knows, after his dominating performance in Suzuka he could still be World Champion by the end of this season, but of course both Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello needs to finish outside the points for Vettel to actually pull this off....

With just 16 points separating the top 3, it is still open for any of the 3 drivers to take the title. Would it happen just like 2 years ago when Kimi Räikkönen won the championship from both Lewis Hamilton & Fernando Alonso (who were both teammates just like Button and Barrichello are now) just by a single point? It could really just happen with the way things are going as it is.

As for the race, Suzuka has always brought excitement, drama and controversy and the race today was no exception. With 5 drivers crashing out on Saturday, a few more drivers received penalties even before the race started and of course the race itself, this definitely has got to be one of the most exciting race this season. Vettel just lead from start to finish without making any mistakes (apart from his first pit stop, which was clearly not his fault) and almost no one could even come close to his pace. The Brawn GP team however couldn't be more the exact opposite, with both drivers receiving a grid penalty for qualifying and had spend most of the day being in the midfield. Luckily both drivers did manage to get some points but still not as much as they would wanted though.

The next race will be at Interlagos for the Brazilian Grand Prix, and surprisingly will not be the last race of the season as this year, it will be Dubai that will be hosting the last race of the season. What will happen in Brazil this year? We will have to wait in 2 weeks time to see and find out.
