SUZUKA, Japan (AP) - Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel won the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday, but will have to wait to seal a fourth-straight Fomula One title as nearest rival Fernando Alonso finished fourth.
Vettel surged into the lead on the 41st lap and led a Red Bull one-two ahead of teammate Mark Webber by 7.1 seconds. Webber, who started from the pole position, passed Lotus' Romain Grosjean on the penultimate lap. Grosjean led much of the race but could not take his first F1 victory.
Vettel managed the rare feat of a fifth-straight race win and leads the championship by 90 points ahead of Alonso with four races remaining.
