Sebastian Vettel going all out for victory at Suzuka

The Japanese Grand Prix will begin the way the last race ended, Sebastian Vettel leading the way and Jenson Button on the chase.

The Red Bull driver needs just one point - a 10th-place finish - to become the youngest double winner at the age of 24, and he made sure he will start first on the grid for the 12th time in 15 races this season.

Pole-sitter Vettel is also gunning his fourth straight race victory and we've got the 24-year-old installed as the 4/6 favourite to complete the win at Suzuka, with Jenson Button the 10/3 second favourite.

"I'm starting from pole so it can't get any better, and as I want to win this race again you can be sure that I will do my best to achieve that," said Vettel "If that means 25 points more, that would be very welcome. Getting only one point would mean I finish in P10 and that wouldn't satisfy me. Clearly winning is the goal."

4/1 third favourite Lewis Hamilton has had a fairly questionable - if not entertaining - season, and with only a few races remaining Hamilton could really do with some decent finishing positions.

The circuit may just come to Lewis' rescue on Sunday though, as the second position on the grid has a major disadvantage, starting the race off-line, and with just 300m to the first corner, those starting from odd numbers on the grid hold the advantage.

In this case, Lewis Hamilton may just get the better of his second placed teammate. He'll follow Vettel into turn one on the left side of the track and as is often the case here in Japan, the driver starting in P3 has taken P2 at the start in the last four races.

Jenson is the 4/6 favourite to beat his McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton (11/10) in our Drivers Match Bets, with either Hamilton or Button to win in Japan priced at 11/8. (Neither Hamilton or Button to win is available to back at 8/15)

Felipe Massa qualified fourth ahead of Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso, with Vettel's Red Bull colleague Mark Webber sixth.
