Well, as you know Vettel is pole, meaning he claimed his 11th Pole of the season, that is some record for this young man.

IF nothing goes wrong, and he finishes the race today with at least 125 points lead (he is 112 points ahead as you'll see from from my 1st post) he will win the Championship here in Singapore with 5 races still to go!
IF he does that it will be one of the earliest Championships concluded, the last time this happened, see below:


Some stats I found:
Driver Races left
2002 Michael Schumacher 6
1992 Nigel Mansell 5
2001 Michael Schumacher 4
2004 Michael Schumacher 4

He is entering so many records books it's unbelievable, if he continues his dominance like Schumacher did he will be entering so many world records!

Still, it's tough circuit and heavy on the brakes so lets see ..what happens today anda great battle beween Alonso, Webber, Hamilton, Button all sooo close in the Championship....

Thank you, as always for taking the time to provide these stats, much appreciated.

And to boot Vettel is a very nice young man too. We loved Singapore, apart from Norway this is one of the cleanest places we've visited. Oh and the food, could just go a plate of Dim Sum now, could pass on the very expensive Gin Sling from Raffles, although still got my souvenir beer mat

Yea it will seem odd watching it in the dark skies, lol, two hours to go.

Re: Singapore Grand Prix 2011 - 23-25 September

Singapore looks great Sunnyseasider, lucky you!! I think I'd enjoy it...thats another one to dream and think about along with the Norwegian fjords I guess, will add that to the list, thanks.

_

Wahey! 1 point..thats how close Vettel is now from winning the World Championship!

He won his 9th race this season (out of 14 races) and out of the races he didn't win he was always 2nd (except for once think it was Hungary? where he was 4th).

This is how the leadership board stands after tonights race:

1 Sebastian Vettel German RBR-Renault 309
2 Jenson Button British McLaren-Mercedes 185
3 Fernando Alonso Spanish Ferrari 184
4 Mark Webber Australian RBR-Renault 182
5 Lewis Hamilton British McLaren-Mercedes 168

Lots going on, shame about Hamilton and Massa incident and the continuation after the race, where Massa confronted Hamilton during a live interview. Hope these guys can calm down as it's not doing either of them any good.

That apart some great driving and looking forward to Japan in a couple of weeks!

Re: Singapore Grand Prix 2011 - 23-25 September

Another great result for Vettel, Hamilton imho lost the plot very early on in the race today. I found the circuit a bit like when watching in Monaco, some ver narrow lanes twisting and turns, not a good viewing race, brilliant if as you posted earlier were staying in the Fullerton Hotel. It's 2003 since we were there, spent 4 days in total there, took the cable car over to Sentosa Island, wonderful idyllic place. Sorry I digress, again, Vettel is safe now eh.

Re: Singapore Grand Prix 2011 - 23-25 September

shame. He's not having a good time at the moment. He clipped the back of Massa's car, Massa got a rear puncture. Hamilton got a penalty. Fair enough.

But for Massa to come and confront Hamilton sarcastically when he was giving a live interview was totally unprofessional on Massa's part.
