The championship clincher! Jenson gathers enough points from his 5th place to take the championship with one race to go. Great result for both him and Brawn who seal the constructors title also. Quite an incredible feat since the team were pretty much by the F1 wayside days before the season started. It might sound like a cliché but this has been a career defining season for Jenson, who was basically out of a job and in danger of becoming known in the history books as a nearly man. Ok his points have tailed off a bit late in the season but delivering those early wins set him up nicely.
Talking of nearly men, arguably the unluckiest man in F1, Webber too really had to deliver this season and elevated himself to double grand prix winner. Again remarkable achievement considering his broken leg over last winter season.
Anyway, sorry for the delay, just a few hours to go before the final race of the season gets under way in Abu Dhabi, but the results after Brazil look like this …
