Formula 1: Brazilian Grand Prix – Race Results

Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull tied Michael Schumacher’s season record of 13 wins and matched Alberto Ascari’s feat of nine consecutive victories by taking Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix — the final race of the 2013 Formula One season.

Vettel, the pole sitter, held off a challenge from Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg for the lead on the opening lap. He then recovered from a pit-road mishap midway through the race. Vettel crossed the finish line 10.4 seconds ahead of his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, who competed in his 215th and final F1 grand prix.

Vettel and Red Bull clinched their fourth successive drivers’ and constructors’ championships four weeks ago in India. Last weekend in Austin, Texas, Vettel set a record for most consecutive wins in a single season with eight. His streak began with the Aug. 25 Belgian Grand Prix, which was the first race after F1’s four-week long summer break.

“I’m actually quite sad this season has come to an end,” Vettel said. “To win every race since the summer break is unbelievable. The car has been phenomenal. It just kept getting better.”
