Amazing results from the Brazilian Grand Prix this morning have seen Mark Webber claim his second victory in Formula One and Jenson Button clinch the driver’s and constructor’s championships for Brawn GP.
The race had a dramatic opening sequence which included three cars crashing out, Kimi Raikkonnen lose his nose cone, drivers fighting on the side of the track, a safety car and a fire in pit lane. Unusually, for Formula One’s unluckiest man, Mark Webber’s start from the front row of the grid ensured he missed all the dramas. He then combined with his Red Bull Racing team to get past race leader, and pole sitter, Rubens Barrichello after the first round of pit stops.
From there Webber completed the race mostly unchallenged and he claimed the chequered flag more than seven seconds ahead of BMW’s Robert Kubica. Of course, this is Webber’s second career win after he won his first Formula One race at Germany in July this year.
