Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel wrapped up the Formula One season on Sunday by winning the Brazilian Grand Prix and becoming the first driver to take nine successive victories in a single year.

The sport's youngest quadruple World champion, still only 26 years old, also matched fellow-German Michael Schumacher's 2004 record of 13 wins in a season.

Australian team mate Mark Webber said farewell with second place, anchoring a one-two in his 215th and final race for the champions before heading to Le Mans sportscars with Porsche.

The Australian removed his helmet on the slowing down lap, feeling the wind in his hair and letting the cheering crowd see his face.
