Jenson Button dropped from third to seventh in the closing laps of the Singapore GP, but the McLaren driver insists that he would not have done any better had he gone for a different strategy.
Button joined Fernando, Alonso, and Kimi Raikkonen in trying to run from the safety car to the flag without an extra pit stop, but while they were able to keep up a good pace, Button fell back when his tires gave up.
Starting with its sixth annual Las Vegas event, Barrett-Jackson begins a new chapter in its history as the pioneer of live television coverage of collector car auctions. The SPEED network was re-branded as FOX Sports 1 in August in the United States, and Barrett-Jackson’s auction coverage will now be carried on several platforms within the FOX family of networks. For viewers in Canada, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the SPEED brand remains, and the new FOX Sports coverage of Barrett-Jackson will be broadcast on the network as usual.
Christian Horner says that Sebastian Vettel put in one of the best drives of his career in Singapore – but he insists that it’s still too early for Red Bull to become overly confident about a fourth title.
“We’ve only extended the lead by another seven points,” said Horner. “Fernando keeps finishing the races, he keeps turning up on the podium. We’re 60 points ahead, we’ve extended our lead, but there are still 150 available. So we’ll keep our heads down and keep pushing.
