The 2013 Formula One season comes to a close today in Brazil after a long year of racing that has been dominated by Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull, both of whom celebrated a fourth consecutive world title in India. However, the final race of the season still holds great importance as the V8 era of the sport comes to a close, and so does Mark Webber’s career ahead of his move to Porsche’s Le Mans programme in 2014. With a number of drivers also vying for a seat on next year’s grid, this is the final chance to impress possible employers. With rain in the offing, the stage is set for a classic season finale.
