Vettel cruises to Singapore win

7:04 am on 23 September 2013

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel's cruised to a third straight Singapore Grand Prix victory on and moved 60 points clear of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in the race for the Formula One driver's Championship.

The German led from pole to flag and to finish more than 30 seconds clear of Alonso and take another big step towards a fourth successive title with six races remaining.

It's Vettel's seventh win in 13 races this season.

Kimi Raikkonen shrugged off back pain to climb from 13th on the grid to third for Lotus in a race that was held up when Daniel Ricciardo crashed his Toro Rosso into the barriers on lap 26.
