Lap 53

Vettel wins, Webber second (with fastest lap), Alonso third and Button fourth.

Hamilton crosses the line in fifth. Schumacher sixth and home hero Kobayashi seventh after a ballsy drive through the field.

Vettel starts his final lap. He's cruising now, although Webber is having a stab at fastest lap behind him.

Lap 52

Vettel sets another fastest lap to go 2.7 seconds up on Webber.

Hamilton has hung onto fifth so far and is comfortably ahead of Schumacher.

Lap 51

Kovalainen is now up to 12th which is very significant as it is the highest placing for a new team this season.

Lap 50

Kobayashi gets past Heidfeld at the hairpin but his Sauber team-mate didn't make it too difficult for him.

Lap 49

Rosberg has had a massive accident at 130 mph at turn seven. The left rear wheel came off and he lost control. The wheel then bounced around.

Kobayashi is now past Barrichello and all over the back of Heidlfeld.

Lap 48

Vettel leads by 2.4 seconds ahead of Webber, who is 2.1 up on Alonso.
