F1 » Vettel inherits win from neutralised Hamilton


Sebastian Vettel emerged triumphant in the 2012 Singapore GP, even though Lewis Hamilton looked to have the race in his pocket early on until his gearbox failed suddenly.

"In his pocket" with Vettel less than 2 seconds back & Jenson 4 seconds back of Hamilton with not even half way through the race. It's hardly having the racing in the bag, it was close up to that point.

Big shame for Lewis tonight, he was certainly the leader of the pack. I believe he will cause some heartache for the remainder of the season, and Fernando got the points again, well done.

alonzo made the bad restart after the first safety car. so lucky for him there was a second one immediately after. lucky lucky alonzo. always good luck with the safety car. just like in 2008.

unlucky lewis had the pace to win and probably would have but i suspect that it was tapping the wall yesterday in qualifying that probably done some internal damage to his gearbox causing the failure never mind 6 to go still have a chance at the title

Hello Lewis Hamilton fans...dare I say this but the Singapore GP is where he has effectively lost the World Championship to either Alonso and Vettel.

Come Brazil, McLaren can look back and point to this gearbox failure as the reason lost the 2012 WDC.

With only 6 races to go, LH needs to win at least 5 of the remaining races with alonso finishing 3rd of worst. What are the odds for that, with Vettel possibly taking 1-2 wins from Hamilton.

Jules, you may be right about that but Vettel had two alternator failures which seems to be Red Bull's Achilles Heel. Ferrari may not have the race pace of McLaren and the Red Bulls at the moment but their reliability is ridiculous! As long as Alonso racks up points this year's WDC title is effectively his.
