So, as the drivers head off to do their media duties and celebrate the end of the season, we must bid you farewell too. Thank you very much for joining us throughout the season, stay with for all the reaction. Congratulations to Mark Webber today, Sebastian Vettel for the whole season and Red Bull for its dominant campaign. We'll see you again in 2012 to find out if anyone can knock the team off its perch.

Christian Horner tells the BBC that the team didn't expect Vettel's gearbox to last past half distance, which puts his drive in to perspective too. We've just heard a bit of radio from Vettel mid-race, when he says "I feel like Senna in 91". On that occasion Senna also had to nurse a gearbox issue with a manual gearbox and had to be helped from the car at the end such was the pain he was in. Of course, he won the race too.

That's Webber's first victory since the Hungarian Grand Prix last year, and fully deserved. Impressive control from Vettel to nurse the car home, and a strong final stint from Button secures another podium. Button finishes as runner-up while Webber beats Alonso to third by a point

Webber spins before raising his trophy aloft. More congratulations from Vettel, and Webber seems to be warming up a bit now - a big smile as he sprays the champagne

Button congratulates Webber before stepping out on the podium, and Webber says "we're going home together aren't we?" Apparently Webber has a party lined up for the flight back...

As Massa returns to the pit lane he entertains the crowd with some burnouts and donuts. Good to see, because he'll probably get in trouble for that!

Lap 71

Webber completes the fastest lap as he starts the final one. He's 13s ahead of Vettel with Button a further 8s back

And Webber cruises round with another fastest lap to win the Brazilian Grand Prix. A good drive from Webber who was so much quicker than everyone else, even though Vettel had that gearbox issue. Vettel is second ahead of Button, who has to stop his car immediately after turn one

Quite subdued response from Webber to his congratulations from the team. He just replies with "Yep, cheers guys". Only Alonso in fourth and Massa in fifth finish on the same lap. Sutil is a strong sixth ahead of Rosberg and di Resta. Kobayashi is ninth to keep Sauber ahead of Toro Rosso and Petrov is tenth to ensure Renault just hold on to fifth in the constructor's championship.

Vettel congratulates Webber on his victory as soon as he is out of the car. Webber was definitely on the sort of form that saw him come so close to the title last year

Lap 70

Massa lets Barrichello through to unlap himself for 14th place. Schumacher is catching the Williams too

Lap 69

Red Bull's radar now saying no rain in these closing three laps. Hardly a surprise as it is clear sunshine. Alonso complains that his rear wing didn't work on the last lap

Lap 68

Massa is the man in fifth place, but he is 26s behind his team-mate Alonso in fifth

Lap 67

Button has the gap down to nine seconds with five laps to go, he won't be able to do it with the traffic ahead of him to. Rosberg also stabilising his seventh position
