Just a week ago in Japan, Sebastian Vettel took the win to close to within four points of World Championship leader, Fernando Alonso, after his non-finish.

The Korea International Circuit hosts the next round as Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton also add to the battle between the top two. Vettel won at the track last year and Alonso in 2010 in the first race in South Korea. Over 55 laps of the 3.48 mile circuit the drivers will be faced with 18 corners, some of which are high-speed, as they exceed speeds of 310km/h.

Looking to turn his fortunes around, will be the Lotus-Renault driver, Romain Grosjean. After his accident with Mark Webber in Japan and also his ban after the Belgium GP, the Frenchman will be hoping to keep it a clean race as he battles to keep his seat at the team.

Lewis Hamilton will look to finish his season on a high as he leaves McLaren to join Mercedes in 2013. The Brit took pole position last year and was second on the podium, so will look to go one further and take the top step.
