Watch: Alan Moore and the information era (ARTE)

The amount of information available in the world continues to double every fraction of a second. For Alan Moore, the creator of V for Vendetta, this saturation of knowledge is a problem. We're overwhelmed, and when we're overwhelmed, the walls come up. Could information overload be behind the fascist renewal? >

Vettel ended a seven-race winless streak at Interlagos a fortnight ago, and he would appear in contention to end the season with successive victories after soaring to the top of the time sheets. The Ferrari driver, who traded playful jibes with Hamilton in Thursday's press conference ahead of the season finale in the desert, posted a best lap of one minute and 39.006 seconds to finish clear of Hamilton with Red Bull's Max Verstappen in third.
