Raikkonen clinches title in Brazil

And Raikkonen secures his sixth win of the season at Interlagos to take the title after Hamilton can only finish seventh.

The British driver's race starts badly when title rivals Raikkonen and Alonso overtake him by the second corner.

Technical problems further hamper Hamilton who drops to 18th on lap eight and he never really recovers, while Alonso's third-place finish is not good enough either.

However, it is a fitting climax to a remarkable season as only one point separates Raikkonen, Hamilton and Alonso at the end.
