The 2011 Singapore Grand Prix might not have been the most exciting race, but Sebastian Vettel is now nearly the World Champion.
Singapore is a notoriously difficult track. Drivers need to call on every bit of their skill just to make it around lap after lap, and as a result, the races end up a being a bit predictable. Anyone who doesn't have that extra bit of talent to spare probably won't be doing much passing, and this is what we found this weekend. The standings, in the end, where almost identical to each driver's ranking in championship points the day before the race.
The only driver to come close to challenging Sebastian Vettel for the win was Jenson Button, but these days there's no getting in front of Vettel when he's on top of his game, and not even the 2009 world champion could take the win away from Vettel. Button took second, with Mark Webber in third. Vettel is now far enough ahead in points that it is expected he will clinch the title in Japan on October 9th. Photos courtesy of Sutton Images.
