    After 15 gruelling races in which he failed to finish lower than fourth, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing clinched the 2011 FIA World Championship for Drivers on Sunday in Japan. The 24-year-old German placed third – having needed just one point – in the thrilling 53-lap race at the classic Suzuka circuit to put the title beyond reach of his only remaining challenger Jenson Button, who took his McLaren to a third 2011 race victory.

    It really is wonderful to be back in Japan. I just love the place, and of course feel a strong connection to the country through having managed many drivers who raced here, plus I used Yokohama tyres in my Formula 3 team, and in Formula 1 we were successful with Bridgestone rubber.

    All hopes Fernando Alonso and PUMA’s partner team Ferrari had of laying claim to the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship collapsed on Sunday when the Spaniard, World Champion in 2005/6, finished fourth in the Singapore Grand Prix, thus putting him out of mathematical reckoning for the title with five (of 19) races remaining.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Singapore’s Grand Prix is one of the major successes in Formula One’s history. Sometimes you have to introduce ground-breaking changes, and this is one of those.

    Last year Aragon delivered one of Ducati’s best performances, so PUMA’s partner team was looking forward to an improvement in fortune following some challenging recent performances.
