Lewis Hamilton was within reach of his fourth Formula One title on Sunday after winning the Japanese Grand Prix for Mercedes while Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel suffered engine problems and failed to finish.Already 34 points behind Hamilton before the start, the setback was the third in as many races for the German, whose hopes now rest on Hamilton suffering similar misfortune in the last four grands prix.Vettel's mechanics changed his car's spark plug on the grid and seemed to have resolved the problem. But while he made a clean start, Hamilton chopped across to keep the lead at the first corner.Clearly lacking power, Vettel fell back through the field before getting the call from his race engineer to retire the car.
