Singapore Grand Prix - 25 September 2011

On Sunday, the spectacular night time race around the streets of Singapore took place. A race which could see the ever dominant Sebastian Vettel take a second World Championship title, if his main competitors struggled to compete.

It was a very exciting race, with Michael Schumacher almost replicating Mark Webber's backflip attempt at Valencia last year, and Lewis Hamilton coming to blows with his regular sparring partner Felipe Massa, which he was consequently penalised for.

Sebastian Vettel was in a race of his own again this weekend, untroubled by the excitement going on behind him.
The results mean that only one man can now beat the German in his quest for the Championship crown - McLaren's Jenson Button. However, all Vettel needs is one solitary point to win, and with over 100 still up for grabs, it's fair to say that this seems likely!

This weekend's Guest Predictor is Tom from WTF1. Can he beat the current Guest record of five correct predictions?

Many thanks to Tom for being this week's Guest Predictor.
By my calculations, that's honours even with three correct predictions each. Not a bad result at all!

The much sought after 'Top Driver' of the weekend accolade, based on our predictions, is Adrian Sutil.
