Sebastian Vettel has won the Indian Grand Prix, and in doing so has claimed his fourth consecutive Formula One World Championship title.
The Red Bull ace clinched overall victory at the Buddh circuit, despite pitting in the opening laps of the race to swap his soft-compound tyres for medium rubber - leaving the rest of the field to surge ahead and eventually putting Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber into the lead.
Vettel was quick to regain his position, though, as a combination of deft overtaking and pit stops soon saw Vettel move from 18th position to fifth on the track. The German continued to chase down Webber, cutting an 18-second defecit to just 11 seconds before the Australian driver pitted, leaving Vettel to re-take the lead.
Both Red Bull drivers then lead a number of laps before Webber was forced to retire due to alternator problems. That issue meant he gifted second place to Lotus' Kimi Raikkonen, who himself was under attack from the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg. The Finn held off as long as he could, but struggled to preserve his pace on fading tyres.
