Lewis Hamilton 12 points ahead after Japan

In a rain drenched race which forced the safety car to slow down the drivers for an extended period, Lewis Hamilton showed his mettle by taking the chequered flag and maximum points.

Luck was on the British rookie’s side in the Japanese Grand Prix as arch-rival, Fernando Alonso, failed to finish when his car seemed to break up in mid track.

However, more controversy has followed the result. The world championship leader has been accused by Red Bull driver Mark Webber of causing him to hit Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel by speeding up and slowing down behind the safety car.

Footage taken from the grandstand is believed to show Hamilton dramatically decelerating and causing the shunt behind him. In theory this could lose him points in the FIA inquiry currently taking place.

However, it’s unlikely the sport will shoot the golden goose and lose the feelgood finale now building up for the last two races of the season.
