Paul Hembery: "First and foremost I'd like to congratulate Sebastian Vettel on becoming the first world champion on Pirelli tyres on our return to Formula One. He's been on unstoppable form all year and it comes as no surprise to see him achieve his second world title here today.
"We'd also like to congratulate Jenson Button for a well-deserved victory against very tough competition. The drivers should take all the credit today for putting on a fantastic race but from our point of view we're happy with the way that the tyres stood up to an extremely demanding circuit, with two to three pit stops as we expected and degradation within the usual limits."
