The defending Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has won the Singapore Grand Prix to claim just his second victory of the season, while championship frontrunner Jenson Button finished fifth to extend his lead to 15 points with three races remaining.

McLaren's Hamilton led from start to finish, with Toyota's Timo Glock finishing in second and Renault's Fernando Alonso taking third.

Hamilton was determined to make up for his heartbreaking loss in Monza earlier this month and says although driving conditions were difficult, the race ran smoothly.
