    • F1 2013 - Red Bull Racing can not be stopped, Vettel wins fifth straight GP - Japanese Grand Prix results

      It is definitely starting to get boring as Red Bull Racing simply dominates the competition taking first and second place in today's Japanese Grand Prix. How dominating? Sebastian Vettel scored his fifth straight victory of the season and ninth victory overall in the 15th race of the season. Only four races remain and Vettel has the driver's title all but officially locked up. Red Bull Racing remains in control for the team championship with Ferrari and Mercedes trailing far behind.


      Speaking of Mercedes, not a good day. Lewis Hamilton wrecked in the very first corner and was done for the day. That left Nico Rosberg to go it alone and he finished in 8th place. Rosberg at least picked up some points but with how much stronger Red Bull Racing seems to be getting and their 1-2 finish those eighth place points are all but meaningless.

      Results below.

        Well Grosjean did his very best which was quite impressive.
        Hamilton had a great start. A little too good, for he was mangled between the Red Bulls and Vettel cut his right rear tire with his front wing even before the first corner, which resulted in so much damage to the undertray of the car that he was missing 1,5 sec/lap, so he stopped.
        Rosberg would have scored better had the pitcrew not released him into the path of Perez, which resulted in a drivetru.
        Red Bull just had the best strategy in Japan. Better tires when they needed them, very good pitstops. It is the complete package that at the moment can't be beat.
