McLaren driver Jenson Button revels in victory at the Suzuka circuit in Japan.

Jenson Button was delighted after he won the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka earlier today.

The Brit beat off competition from Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, whose third place ensured he claimed the World Championship title.

"This circuit is very special to all of us so to get a victory here in front of this Japanese crowd means a lot," he said.

"This gives us a lot of motivation. To see three cars in a few seconds shows how competitive F1 is right now."

The drivers head to Korea next week for race number 15 of 18 for the season.
