Mark Webber wins Formula 1 season finale in Brazil

Alright folks, the major racing seasons are all concluded now. It's officially time to commence your withdrawal symptoms.

Mark Webber ran away with the final race of the Formula 1 season in Brazil on Sunday, beating Fernando Alonso and teammate Sebastian Vettel, the 2011 world champion.

Vettel started on the pole but had gearbox problems and Webber got past on lap 29. The pole was Vettel's 15th in the season's 19 races -- an astonishing feat.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton also had gearbox problems and was forced to retire. Post-race, he shared a hug from Felipe Massa, an apparent making up for their multiple on-track incidents over the season.

When asked by Speed Channel's Will Buxton before the race, F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone was dismissive of the chances of the Austin race being held in 2012 saying that the track had neither a pen to sign the contract or the money to make the deal. The fate of the Austin race may not be truly known until the unveiling of the 2012 F1 schedule. Or, at this rate with all the hemming and hawing, when the 2012 season is over.
