Japan 2011 - Race result // Jenson Button snatched the win from polesitter Sebastian Vettel

Published by Christine

Sebastian Vettel held on to his lead off the start, but it was not going to be a Red Bull victory in Suzuka today. Both Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso managed their tyres better and put in fast laps when it counted to move ahead of Vettel. Further down the order, Nico Rosberg scraped into the points after starting from the final row on the grid, whilst Sébastien Buemi was the only retirement over the 53 laps.
