The 2012 Formula 1 season has been an absolutely phenomenal one, with some very close racing. Because of just how close things were, the driver’s championship came down to the last race today, the Brazilian GP. It was between Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel. But after all was said and done, Vettel managed to clinch his third consecutive championship. Congratulations!
The race results themselves don’t make it immediately evident. In first place was Jenson Button of McLaren, followed by Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa of Ferrari. Vettel is all the way down in sixth place. However, he had just enough of a points lead before the race to maintain the victory. And it was a well-deserved victory at that, as throughout the whole season he has displayed some fantastic driving. So once again, congratulations! I look forward to seeing Vettel defend his championship in 2013.
