Fernando Alonso managed to turn seventh on the grid into second at the checkered flag after a vintage performance by the Spaniard in Singapore.

He jumped up to third at the start and then gambled by pitting under a safety car on lap 25 while Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg up ahead chose to stay out, as did Mark Webber and Lewis Hamilton. He dropped to fifth but managed to keep his tires in good shape and get to the flag. When the others pitted only Vettel was able to stay ahead, leaving Alonso in second.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel again stamped himself the man to beat by setting the fastest time in Friday’s practice for the Singapore Grand Prix.

Chasing his third straight win in Formula One’s annual night race and seemingly headed for a fourth successive drivers’ championship, Vettel set a time of 1 minute, 44.249 seconds on the Marina Bay circuit; six tenths of a second clear of teammate Mark Webber.

Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton were the nearest rivals, but third-placed Rosberg was more than a second slower than Vettel.
