London, Sep 23: Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel moved closer to a fourth world championship title after he produced one of the most dominant performances of his career to win the Singapore GP at a canter.
According to Sky Sports, with a championship lead of 60 points, more than two race victories with just six rounds to go, the World Champion’s defence of his drivers’ crown is proving increasingly academic.
Incredibly, Alonso was joined on the podium by his 2014 team-mate Kimi Raikkonen who, despite suffering from back pains since Saturday, gritted his Finnish teeth and raced hard to come from 13th to third, the report said.
For Mercedes it proved a case of what might have been as despite Nico Rosberg running second to Vettel for much of the race, the team ended the race with the German and team-mate Lewis Hamilton battling over fourth and fifth places respectively after the Brackley team chose not to pit under the safety car, the report added.
