This is F1Minute - Red Bull become World Constructors Champions for third consecutive year.

With Sebastian Vettel’s second place finish at the United States Grand Prix, Red Bull secured their third Constructor’s Championship in a row. It wasn’t the result they might have hoped for, with Vettel’s pole position being reduced to second place, and Mark Webber’s retirement from the race due to an alternator failure, but the points were enough to gain them yet another trophy. The team took the lead of the championship way back in Bahrain and have never looked back.

Team principal Christian Horner was ecstatic, saying: “It's fantastic, it's all down to the team. We've joined a list of illustrious names, I think there's only three other teams have done it in the history of the sport. It's something the team has worked incredibly hard for.”

The other three teams are, of course, Ferrari, Williams and McLaren, whilst Lotus are the only other ones to have more than three titles to their name anyway.

The battle between second place Ferrari and third place McLaren continues on to Brazil, with 14 points between the two.
