The question of whether Lewis Hamilton will win his fourth Formula One world championship this year now looks more a matter of when and where after his Japanese Grand Prix triumph Sunday.Fifty-nine points clear of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel with four races remaining, the Mercedes driver can wrap things up at the next race in Austin, Texas, in two weeks if everything goes to plan.Vettel had lined up in Suzuka on the front row alongside Hamilton but a humble spark plug, one of the cheapest components on a car packed with hi-tech wizardry, stopped his challenge after four laps.In the five races since the break, Hamilton has won four times and taken 118 points compared to a mere 45 for Vettel.In the last four races alone, Vettel has given away 66 points to Hamilton.
