Vettel Clinches Brazilian Grand Prix ahead of Bottas

SAO PAULO Ė Ferrariís German driver Sebastian Vettel prevailed on Sunday over Valtteri Bottas of Finland, driving for Mercedes, to win Brazilís Formula One Grand Prix.

Vettel, a four-time world champion, needed one hour, 31 minutes and 26.262 seconds to clinch his third win in Brazil following his success in 2010 and 2013.

After putting on a standout performance almost from beginning to end, Vettel earned his fifth win of the season, following his victories in the Australia, Bahrain, Monaco and Hungary Grand Prix competitions.

Despite starting off from the pole position, Bottas ended the race in the No. 2 spot, 2.762 seconds behind Vettel, who surpassed him on Turn 1 in the very first lap.

This was not the only action in the first lap, with the race ending practically before it got started for Denmarkís Kevin Magnussen (with Haas) and Belgiumís Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren) following a small incident that also involved Red Bullís Daniel Ricciardo, who was nevertheless able to complete the race.

During the first lap, a collision caused by Romain Grosjean (Haas) ended the race for Force Indiaís French Esteban Ocon, with Grojean being handed a 10-second penalty.

Finlandís Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) came in third place, 4.6 seconds off the pace but ahead of Mercedesí British driver Lewis Hamilton, who was just 0.868 second shy of making it to the winnersí podium.

To stand in the winnerís circle, Hamilton would have had to dig deep, as he was forced to start from the last position.

In his last race on home turf, Felipe Massa (Williams), who will end his racing career at the end of the season, finished in seventh place, behind Belgiumís Max Verstappen and Ricciardo, who were in fifth and sixth places, respectively.
