Indian Grand Prix Results - Formula One

Redbulls Sebastian Vettel becomes the first driver to win the Indian GP.  Vettel led from the start with his only real competitor being Jenson Button who was on his tail for all of the race, and finished in second position ahead of Alonso.

Button made second spot after passing Webber and Alonso on the first lap of the race.

Once again Lewis Hamilton was in the wars when he and Massa collidied while Hamilton tried to overtake Massa.  But this time it was Felipe that was handed the punishment of a drive through penalty.  The collision caused Hamilton to lose a few places after having to make a pit stop to rectify the damage.

Things got even worse for Massa when he broke his suspension as he took one of the kerbs.

MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli dies in Sepang crash

Italian rider Marco Simoncelli has died in a tragic crash at the Malaysian MotoGP in Sepang.

The race was stopped on lap two when Simoncelli's bike veered across the track into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.  As Simoncelli collided with Edwards and Rossi his helmet was knocked off leaving him helpless as he slid down the track.  As the race was red flagged, Simoncelli lay motionless on track.

The race was later cancelled.

This comes just a week after british indycar driver Dan Wheldon was killed.

Japanese GP Suzuka Results - Formula One

Jenson Button holds on to win the Japanese Gp, with a late surge from Alsonso threatening to take the lead, but Button held on to produce the fastest laps of the GP with just a couple of laps remaining.  It was another great display by Button and once again used his tyres to great effect. Alonso finished in second position with Vettel only managing third spot but taking the drivers championship in the process.

Vettel only needed 1 point from this race to secure the championship for the second time.  There was at no point in the race that it looked like he would not gain that 1 point.

Possible new motorway speed limit

It has been proposed by the government to increase motorway speed limits to 80mph by 2013, but also there will be an expansion on 20mph limits in urban areas.

No doubt there will be stiff opposition from environmentalists and road safety groups.

The existing 70mph speed limit was put in place in 1965, but cars are now significantly safer than back in the 60's
