Vettel wins Japanese GP but not yet F1 title
SUZUKA, Japan (AP):
Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel won the Japanese Grand Prix on yesterday, but will have to wait to seal a fourth-straight Formula One title as nearest rival Fernando Alonso finished fourth.
Vettel surged into the lead on the 41st lap and led a Red Bull one-two ahead of teammate Mark Webber by 7.1 seconds. Webber, who started from pole position, passed Lotus' Romain Grosjean on the penultimate lap. Grosjean led much of the race, but could not take his maiden F1 victory and finished third.
It was Vettel's fourth win in the past five races at Suzuka, and his ninth win of the season.
"We had a great car, and were fast again this year," Vettel said. "Being able to finish on the podium and to win four times here is incredible. The fans here are incredible, they really respect us."
Bradley wins split decision over Marquez
LAS VEGAS (AP):
Timothy Bradley advanced his claim to be regarded as the world's best welterweight by winning a split decision over Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday.
Bradley thwarted Marquez's attempt to win his fifth world title by coming on in the second half of the fight to win. It was the third-straight close-decision win for Bradley, who was a hotly disputed winner over Manny Pacquiao two fights ago, and retained the WBO belt he won in that bout.
The pro-Marquez crowd booed loudly, and Bradley egged them on afterward. He won 116-112 on one card and 115-113 on another, while a third judge had Marquez winning 115-113. The Associated Press scored it 115-113 for Bradley.
Both fighters earned $4 million.
