F1: Vettel wins Singapore Grand Prix

F1: Vettel wins Singapore Grand Prix



He is just a point away from clinching this year's championship.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel won his first-ever Singapore Grand Prix as fireworks flowered across the Marina Bay Circuit skyline.

It was the German's first perfect race as he led from start to finish for all 61 laps to come just 1.7 seconds ahead of his nearest rival.

The dominance means Vettel is now just a point shy from being crowned the world champion for the second year in a row, a result which he said he was "capable" of completing in the next five races.

Second-placed Jenson Button thrilled spectators with a last-minute fight when he put pedal to metal and narrowed the drastic gap between him and Vettel. At one point in the night race, the gap was as wide as 20 seconds.

Button closed the crevasse with what he called "a series of 10 to 12 qualifying laps put together" but it was not enough to convert the chance as traffic at the last stretch intervened and held him up.

Still, Button claimed that he was "happy to be in second" and that the result was "as good as it can be". He is now the only person who can mathematically beat Vettel and win the championship.

Vettel's team-mate Mark Webber came third after a bad start from second in the grid saw him dropped places.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, Singapore's two-time champion, came fourth while his team-mate Felipe Massa had an incident with Lewis Hamilton, and dropped to ninth after suffering a punctured tyre.

Hamilton was penalised with a drive-through for the early collision with Massa. Both drivers returned to the pit after the incident for repairs but Hamilton who fought his way up the grid to fifth, just a spot down from the position he qualified for.

Mercedes' Michael Schumacher had an early retirement after he clipped the back of Sergio Perez's car and went airborne.

The seven-time world champion lost control and crashed into the barrier. Fortunately he was uninjured.

Schumacher later coolly brushed off the accident as a "racing situation" and was not affected by it. He attributed it to being surprised by how early Perez had lifted off the accelerator at the turn.

However stewards thought otherwise and gave him an official reprimand at the end of the race. Perez finished 10th.

Force India's Paul Di Resta left with an impressive showing for his first Singapore Grand Prix. He was placed sixth while team-mate and German Adrian Sutil went home with eighth.

Fellow German Nico Rosberg finished seventh.

In two separate incidents, Team Lotus was fined 10,000 euros (S$17,482) for the unsafe release of Heikki Kovalainen from his pit stop.

Lotus Renault was fined 7,500 euros (S$13,111for not informing Brunno Senna of his correct race position, thus leading to an avoidable collision with Perez.

The next grand prix is in Suzuka, Japan.

Vettel triumphs but no title yet

Vettel triumphs but no title yet



Sebastian Vettel set the fireworks ablaze when he won his first SingTel Formula One Singapore Grand Prix.

my paper


Sebastian Vettel set the fireworks ablaze when he won his first SingTel Formula One Singapore Grand Prix - and his ninth race win of the season - in imperious fashion from pole to finish last night.

However, the Red Bull driver has to put the champagne reserved for his eventual overall- title triumph back on ice for at least one more race.

While the German fulfilled his side of the bargain by winning at the Marina Bay street circuit, one of his closest title challengers refused to fade away.

That driver was McLaren's Jenson Button, who came in second and even mounted a thrilling if unsuccessful catch-up attempt in the closing stages.

He eventually finished just 1.7 seconds behind Vettel.

Vettel's other contenders - teammate Mark Webber and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso - finished third and fourth respectively.

In doing so, the duo are out of the overall-title race, with insufficient points garnered to continue the chase.

So Vettel has to move on to the next race, Japan Grand Prix in a fortnight, for his second attempt at retaining his F1 championship - and he needs just a single point to do so.

The 24-year-old leapt and pumped his fists in delight at the podium, receiving the brand-new trophy designed by Royal Selangor from Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

He said after the win: "It's a fantastic result. I love the track, I love the challenge of the long track.

"We'll have another chance at the next race for the championship."

Two former champions had wretched races. Lewis Hamilton, who started fourth on the grid, was squeezed back into seventh at the first turn.

The 2008 F1 champion then got himself into a tussle with long-time rival Felipe Massa, and punctured the Ferrari driver's rear tyre, earning himself a drive-through penalty that effectively ended his bid to win his second Singapore Grand Prix.

The Briton eventually finished fifth, entertaining fans as he overtook repeatedly.

Seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher retired from the race in spectacular fashion, clipping the rear of Sauber's Sergio Perez and going airborne before crashing his Mercedes GP car into the walls.

He escaped unhurt, although the lap-30 crash brought out the safety car for the only time during the race.
