Mark Webber has congratulated team mate Sebastian Vettel after the German won his third world title in Brazil.

Webber was fourth in Interlagos.

"He's in a club on his own now," Webber said.

"Very, very special to do it three times in a row. Last year was a little more straightforward, this year was a bit more difficult, as was 2010. Three in a row is going some, for sure. So I congratulate him, it's a great effort."

Webber had a difficult race, but still managed to claim a decent finish

"I was up nice and high and I was trying to get back into it but I was on the white line and I had absolutely no grip. I tried to go wide and stay away from Sebastian. It was quite a tricky race for Seb and I. The temperature wasn't super-easy for us to get into the car".

"It didn't disappoint in terms of drama, did it?"
