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.

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.

Audi inched closer to locking up the FIA World Endurance Championship on Sunday, as the German manufacturer edged out rival Toyota for top honors in the Six Hours of the Circuit of The Americas.

Allan McNish took the No. 2 Audi R18-etron quattro to a narrow 23.617-second victory over Stephane Sarrazin’s No. 8 Toyota TS030 Hybrid, which battled the diesel-powered hyrbid and led overall at stages of the inaugural round in Texas.

The key of the race was tire durability, as McNish and co-drivers Tom Kristensen and Loic Duval managed to double stint their Michelins, whereas the Toyota struggled to do the same.
