Vettel is delighted on the radio and Horner says "you're back in this championship". Fireworks explode over the circuit and you'd expect Alonso is about as happy as Vettel at this result as he maintains a relatively comfortable championship lead - 29 points ahead of Vettel.

Vettel dedicates his win to Sid Watkins over the radio. Nice touch.

The rest of the points' scorers are Massa (with an impressive drive), Ricciardo and Webber. Glock does indeed finish 12th ahead of Kobayashi and moves Marussia above Caterham in the championship standings.

Anmol sums up Massa's performance with: "Out of everyone's eyes...I would say Massa has raced a brilliant race in my opinion. After being 24th after the first race, to be up to 8th is commendable. If his pass on Senna doesn't show Ferrari that he still has it in him, then I don't know what will..."

As the drivers head for the podium, it's time for us to sign off. A great day for Vettel, a very good one for Alonso and an awful one for Hamilton. Is the championship a three-horse race now? Thanks for all your comments and questions, stick with for all of the reaction. Bye for now.

Lap 59

Senna has pulled off and is out of the race. Glock is up to 12th which would put Marussia ahead of Caterham in the championship.

Vettel has picked up the pace and is 8.3s clear of Button. This is the last lap as the time has ticked to zero.

Vettel crosses the line and completes his victory comfortably in the end - winning by 8.9s - and Button comes home second ahead of Alonso. Di Resta is fourth and Rosberg holds off the two Lotuses for fifth.

Lap 58

Vettel starts what is potentially his penultimate lap - there may be one after that - and his lead is 6.7s. Webber is still close behind Ricciardo but can't get through using DRS. Perez has past Senna for 12th - Senna with a very slow lap. He radios in and says it was a loss of power. If that causes him to stop then Glock would be up to 12th...

Lap 57

Three laps to go and Alonso can't reel in Button quickly enough - 6.3s is the gap. Vettel has extended his lead to 6.1s and can cruise home.

Webber's incident with Kobayashi will be investigated after the race.

Lap 56

Webber already on to the back of Ricciardo for ninth place with just over six minutes to go. Looks like a 59 or 60 lap race. Senna is told to try and hold position - he might get a look at Ricciardo for a point come the end.

Lap 55

Vettel appears to have this covered as Button's pace starts to drop off. Alonso is now just 6.9s behind Button and catching at about 0.7s per lap. Webber uses DRS to pass Senna for tenth place. They were both catching Ricciardo ahead.
