The Formula One title battle between Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso will go down to the wire in Brazil after McLaren's Lewis Hamilton won the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday.
Championship leader Vettel finished second after starting his 100th career F1 race on pole position while Alonso remained in contention with third place and is now 13 points adrift of the German with one race left.
While Vettel was denied a third straight title, Red Bull were able to celebrate the constructors' title - becoming only the fourth team in the 62 year history of the sport to take the championship three years in a row.
"It's incredible, something that everyone throughout the team has worked incredibly hard for and to have achieved it is something...I'm speechless really," said team principal Christian Horner.
