Michael Schumacher's Singapore Grand Prix came to a premature halt when the seven-times Formula One champion crashed heavily on lap 30.

The German's Mercedes shunted the back of Sergio Perez's Sauber and flipped up at the front before slamming into the barriers.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel held off a charging Jenson Button to win the race and stand one point away from becoming Formula One's youngest double world champion.
