Sebastian Vettel won the Singapore Grand Prix, further extending his lead in the 2013 Formula One World Championship.
Vettel qualified on pole position for the start of the race, followed by Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) and Romain Grosjean (Lotus). His Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber qualified in fourth position.
After a clean start to the race, Rosberg challenged Vettel into the first corner, causing the reigning world champion to briefly lose the lead. Rosberg, though, immediately ran wide, putting Vettel back in to a lead he was never to lose. Alonso enjoyed a flying start to move from seventh to third position.
As the race entered its middle stages most teams suffered with excessive tyre degradation, and many were forced to reconsider their original two-stop strategies.
Daniel Ricciardo (Torro Rosso) retired from the race after putting his car into the barriers on lap 25, causing a safety car period. He was followed by another retirement from Paul Di Resta (Force India), who crashed into the barriers at turn seven on lap 55.
