Pizzonia takes the final win as the curtain falls on another season

Pizzonia takes the win in the Japanese Grand Prix and with the Drivers Championship decided, all eyes were on Jordan, Renault and B.A.R. to see who took the prize of best Constructor. We'll answer that question later on.

The race was certainly eventful. The skies were clear but there was a chance of some heavy rain. The race was dry for all of 2 laps which caught Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher out straight away. It caught Raikkonen out more when he spun in the same place as the previous lap but beached the car in the gravel trap to end his race on lap 3.

Wilson was the next to go on lap 4 when he smashed into the barriers. Panis crashed out on lap 5, ending a dismal season in last place in the Drivers Championship and making Toyota's job of getting out of last place even harder. Fisichella's suspension failed on lap 6 in the only mechanical failure of the day. Toyota's race and season was over when Da Matta spun and beached himself in the gravel on lap 7.

Webber smashed into the barriers on lap 8 as conditions really started to deteriorate. Ralf Schumacher was next to go on lap 24 when he smashed into the barriers. Trulli smashed into the barriers on lap 45 to end a season that started so promisingly. Montoya was the final retirement on lap 49 when he crashed in the same place as Trulli but got classified in 14th.

There was a lot of spinning cars during the race. Apart from Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher, which I've already mentioned, Alonso, Montoya, Trulli twice, Verstappen, Irvine, Barrichello twice, Button 3 times, R Schumacher twice, Heidfeld twice, Frentzen, Villeneuve and Coulthard all had spins of varying sizes.

So, who won the Constructors Championship for 2003? The answer is...

Jordan.

They rested their hopes on Firman and it paid off as neither Renault or B.A.R. could manage points and Firman finishing in a comfortable 2nd place.

Pizzonia ends his, and Jaguar's season, on a high with a win. Firman ends a tremendous season of reliability and consistency with 2nd place. De La Rosa ends another solid season with 3rd place. Frentzen takes 4th and completes a good second half to the season. Michael Schumacher takes 5th place and it is definitely an improvement on last seasons performances. Heidfeld couldn't quite take 2nd in the Championship but a stunning season ends with 6th place. Coulthard takes 7th place and 2 points with Irvine taking 1 point for 8th in his best season.

1st Pizzonia (Jules) 1h33m10.745s - (Up 1)

Missed this in my rush to get to the awards ceremony:)

Am envious though. He did it deliberately you know, as his season was already over he decided to go on holiday early. At least he saw a beach, all I saw was ruddy sheep.

4th place. To think Button was last at one point!

Shame He got no points in Japan though. Oh well, at least he got some podiums.
