5:44 am on 26 November 2013

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel has won the Brazilian Grand Prix, sealing a record ninth straight victory and his 13th title of the Formula One motor racing season.

Vette's Australian team-mate Mark Webber bowed out of the sport with second place, anchoring a Red Bull one-two in his 215th and final race for the champions, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso third.

The 26-year-old German's victory equalled Michael Schumacher's 2004 record with Ferrari of 13 wins in a season.

Vettel and Red Bull had secured their fourth successive drivers' and constructors' titles last month.
