Formula One: Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel wins Singapore Grand Prix for third time
SEBASTIAN Vettel became the first man to win the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix for the third time on Sunday night.
The Red Bull ace, who had a perfect drive from pole to chequered flag, finished the 61 laps after 1hr 59min 13.132sec, 32.627sec ahead of second-placed Fernando Alonso of Ferrari. The winning margin is the biggest in this F1 season.
Vettel is now 60 points ahead of Alonso in the drivers' standings, with just six races left.
The outstanding performance of the night has to be that of Kimi Raikkonen. The Lotus man, who is the 2007 world champion, had qualified a poor 13th after being bothered by a back problem which required pain-killing injections on Saturday. The Finn finished third to stand on the podium in Singapore for the first time.
