SUZUKA, Japan—Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel won the Japanese Grand Prix
from pole on Sunday to close within four points of the top of the Formula One
championship standings as leader Fernando Alonso of Ferrari crashed out of the
race at the first turn. Reggie Wayne Womens Jersey . Vettel, who also
won the previous race in Singapore, is moving within sight of a third straight
title—something only previously achieved by Juan-Manuel Fangio and Michael
Schumacher—with five races left. “It was an important step today,” Vettel
said. “There is still a long way to go. I dont know what happened behind me
today but Alonso was very unlucky. We never know what is going to happen in the
next race so it was important to take points today.” Alonsos Ferrari teammate
Felipe Massa was second, 20.6 seconds behind Vettel for his first podium since
Korea in 2010, putting in a performance that should boost his chances of
retaining his place in the team. Saubers Kamui Kobayashi delighted home fans by
taking third place—holding off a strong late challenge from McLarens Jenson
Button—for his first-ever F1 podium, becoming the first Japanese driver on a
podium here since 1990. The race got off to a tumultuous start with a series of
collisions in the first corner sequence. Alonso made contact with the Lotus of
Kimi Raikkonen and appeared to sustain a puncture, fishtailing off the track and
the car stalled, leaving a disconsolate Alonso to trudge back on the short walk
to the pits. Also on the first bend, Lotus Romain Grosjean rammed into the Red
Bull of Mark Webber, putting the Australian to the back of the field after
starting from second. Grosjean was given a drive-through penalty for causing the
collision, and given he was suspended for a race for doing the same in Belgium,
the Frenchman may well receive further such punishment. Also in the first
corner, Mercedes Nico Rosberg came together with Williams Bruno Senna, ending
the Germans race. Vettel avoided all the trouble behind him at the first turn,
and quickly established a comfortable lead. Massa overtook Kobayashi after the
first set of pitstops and managed to close the gap slightly but Vettel
maintained a strong lead to the checkered flag. Vettel blocked Alonso during the
final moments of qualifying on Saturday when the Ferrari driver was arriving at
the chicane. Race officials reviewed the incident and reprimanded Vettel but
allowed him to maintain pole position. That decision may have been a factor in
Alonsos aggressive start. Sauber driver Sergio Perezs day came to an end when he
spun off the track on the 19th lap trying to pass Lewis Hamilton at the hairpin
turn. Perez will replace Hamilton next season at McLaren as the Briton moves to
Mercedes. With the winner decided early on, the focus for many of the fans
became third place where Kobayashi was battling it out with Button, who won here
last year. Kobayashi, who started third on the grid, prevailed by half a second
to become the first Japanese since Aguri Suzuki in 1990 to celebrate on the
podium in front of home fans. Hamilton finished in fifth, 20 seconds off Button,
and in front of a chain of cars fighting out the lower points positions.
Raikkonen took sixth ahead of Force Indias Nico Hulkenberg, with Pastor
Maldonado of Williams eighth and Webber recovering for ninth. Toro Rossos Daniel
Ricciardo held off Michael Schumacher of Mercedes to take the last point. In the
drivers championship, Alonso and Vettel look like fighting out the title.
Raikkonen is 33 points behind Vettel in third and five points in front of
Hamilton. Webber and Button are 59 and 63 points off the lead respectively. Red
Bull extended its lead in the constructors championship to 42 points ahead of
McLaren, with Ferrari a further 20 points behind. Reggie Wayne White Jersey . —Andrew Luck

Froch stuck to his game plan on Saturday—and the result was a resounding
victory over Canadas Lucian Bute that left the English boxer the new IBF
super-middleweight world champion. “I executed the plan to a tee,” Froch said
after his fifth-round victory over the previously undefeated Romanian native.
“The plan in fact was just to listen to (coach) Rob McCracken. I listened to him
during the fight, as I listened to him for the entire 12 weeks of training
camp.” That strategy involved staying balanced and avoiding getting hit
repeatedly with consecutive punches. On both scores, he was successful. Frochs
victory in his hometown of Nottingham leaves the new champion undefeated in more
than 20 fights on English soil. Bute, who had defended his title nine times
since winning it in 2007, was outclassed by the hard-punching Froch (29-2-0, 21
knockouts). The referee stopped the fight with Bute (30-1-0, 24 knockouts)
slumping against the ropes after a flurry of punches from Froch. Bute was able
to get in a few punches in each round but was hammered in the third by his
34-year-old opponent. Bute tried to keep his distance beginning in the fourth
round but Froch kept on attacking, leaving the defending champion with no option
but to hold on for the bell. “I spent too much time trying to trade punches with
him” Bute said. “Even on the ropes I thought I could get out of it by surprising
him with my left, but I wasnt able to.” Frroch, who had taunted Bute in the
run-up to the bout by saying he had never fought anyone of note, said it wasnt
the cakewalk it may have appeared to be. T.Y. Hilton Jersey. “Maybe it looked like an
easy fight, but it wasnt an easy fight,” said the victor. “The times he caught
me, he did hit me hard, and I realized why he was able to knock out so many
boxers.” Added Froch: “I knew that if I let him get me with consecutive hits, Id
be in trouble. But I was a man on a mission tonight. Im built like Pac-Man. When
I get punched, I eat them up like its nothing.” Bute sounded philosophical after
experiencing being defeated for the first time as a professional. “Its my first
loss, but its not the end of the world,” he said. “Ill be back. I need some rest
right now, but I know I have the character to rebound. “I lost a lot of fights
as an amateur and I always came back.” Frochs victory sets up the possibility of
an eventual rematch in Montreal, although the new champions first defence of the
title will likely be against another opponent. Frochs last fight was a one-sided
loss to Andre Ward in the final of Showtimes Super-Six series in December. He
said that defeat served as incentive in preparing for Saturday. “There was a lot
of negativity going around in the media about me here locally, but it fuelled
me,” he said. “I wasnt myself against Ward, but that loss gave me the kick I
needed to bring back the old me.” ’ ’ ’
