2009 SINGAPORE GP: EASY WIN FOR HAMILTON

.
McLaren's Lewis Hamilton won Formula 1's second night race with a commanding performance from pole position in the Singapore Grand Prix. Timo Glock (Toyota) and Fernando Alonso (Renault) completed the podium with brilliant drives for their struggling teams, after pitlane penalties scuppered Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel's chances of winning.

Championship leader Jenson Button actually managed to extend his points advantage by recovering from 11th on the grid to finish fifth - one place ahead of his Brawn team-mate and main title rival Rubens Barrichello, who is now 15 points behind with three races to go.
