As his teammate Sebastian Vettel was drenched in champagne, and unconvincingly downplayed the assumption he is assured of a fourth-successive Formula One title, Red Bull’s Mark Webber sat disconsolately in the garage and reflected upon yet another chapter in his story of extraordinary bad luck.

The Australian has shown a repeated knack throughout his career for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, even spawning a Facebook page titled `Why is Mark Webber so unlucky’, and Sunday’s Korean Grand Prix may well have been the most remarkable example yet.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel’s relentless push toward a seemingly inevitable fourth-straight Formula One drivers’ championship continued with a victory at the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday.

Even two safety-car periods, the emergence of a truck on the circuit mid-race and the incineration of his teammate’s car were not enough to put off the German, who made it a hat-trick of wins in Korea, and a fourth successive victory overall.

Scott Dixon made the opening race of the Houston Grand Prix a Penske Racing nightmare, grabbing a series-best fourth victory while slicing a huge chunk off Helio Castroneves’ lead in the IndyCar championship race.

Dixon, who entered Saturday’s race trailing Castroneves by 49 points, cut his deficit to eight points heading into Sunday’s race. A sweep of the doubleheader through Reliant Park would put the New Zealander in control headed into the Oct. 19 finale at Fontana, California.

Level 5 Motorsports locked up its third consecutive P2 teams’ championship Saturday with a dominant run in Saturday’s Oak Tree Grand Prix at Virginia International Raceway.

Ryan Briscoe took the No. 551 HPD ARX-03b to a 13.464-second win over the No. 01 Extreme Speed Motorsports entry of Scott Sharp, who finished in second.

The two similarly prepared cars enjoyed an early race battle, in the hands of Scott Tucker and Anthony Lazzaro, with the Level 5 team owner losing the lead to the ESM entry just past the 40-minute mark.
