With none wins in 14 races, Vettel now needs just a single point to be able to register his name in a second world title, something he desperately wants. His closest threat at the moment is Jenson Button as with the numbers game who can beat his record. Jenson came in second after Red Bull’s Mark Webber. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished in fourth and then was Lewis Hamilton just making it from a drive-through penalty.

With the Grand Prix buzzing in India, Force India’s Paul di Resta debuted a superb performance, finishing in at the sixth place. The ninth position was also taken by Force India’s Adrian Sutil.

Right after three laps, Vettel was ahead of Button by approximately 4 seconds after he took off from pole position. The time gap then increased to 12 second long before the first pit stops were made. He maintained his distance as well as his speed for the rest of the race and eased off to victory at then end. Button was very close to Vettel by the finishing of the race however not close enough to pass by the checkered flag as Vettel took the victory to his name.

Schumacher had a close one this race as his car was launched into the air after hitting the back of Perez’s. A safety car was introduced and Schumacher came around uninjured from the impact. He was disappointed with the scene as the hit had increased the time gap by a huge margin.

For now his victory has put Vettel with 124 points ahead of Button. There are just 125 points left in the season and crucial ones for Vettel to be able to get that world title. In all the races so far, Vettel has shown remarkable performance finishing either first or second in all the races except one, where he finished fourth. Nevertheless he is the highest bidder in the running to seize his much-awaited honor.

“Pretty happy to be second, I couldn’t really find the grip with the car. I needed to find a pace that was comfortable in the car and not damaging the tires too much”, said Button.

The last races remain crucial to Vettel as he eyes that world title.
