2010 SINGAPORE GP: ALONSO WINS AGAIN

Fernando Alonso made it again

Fernando Alonso wins again at the Singapore Grand Prix, his second win, which reduced Mark Webber's lead at the top of the drivers' championship to 11 points with four grands prix remaining. With only 25 points separating the top five, this season is going to be most interesting one. The Spaniard saw off a late challenge from Sebastian Vettel to take the win.Alonso's win proved to the relatively straightforward, as although Vettel was never far behind him, nor was he ever really close enough to mount a serious challenge. The pair held their positions after pitting on the same lap, and the it was only on the final lap that Vettel managed to get close enough to think about having a look.

As well as keeping Alonso in the title hunt, the race dealt another blow to the hopes of Lewis Hamilton, who failed to finish for the second race in a row. Team-mate Jenson Button salvaged something for McLaren by finishing fourth. Webber's third place is result to a tyre gamble when the safety car came out on lap three to remove Tonio Liuzzi's stricken Force India from the circuit, and also managing to come out undemaged after collision with Hamilton.
