Button ends the year #2

Jenson Button ends the 2011 Formula 1 season at #2! Vettel secured the Drivers Championship weeks ago (he ended the season with 11 wins!) but the #2 ranking was still up for grabs in the last race in Brazil. Both Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber had a chance to overtake him. Thankfully, a good run during qualification and a great race gave him a 3rd place podium finish and allowed him to remain at #2.

Mark Webber won the race - his first this season - and managed to pip Alonso for overall 3rd spot. With Vettel placing 2nd in the race, it meant that all three podium finishers in the final race are also the top 3 drivers of the season. Pretty cool.

Hopefully Jenson can continue to drive well and maybe win a few more trophies with McLaren next year. It'll certainly be tough with Vettel starting to dominate F1, but Jenson managed to win a few races this year so that's a good sign.
