Vintage Alonso Performance Earns Second In Singapore
Fernando Alonso managed to turn seventh on the grid into second at the checkered flag after a vintage performance by the Spaniard in Singapore.
He jumped up to third at the start and then gambled by pitting under a safety car on lap 25 while Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg up ahead chose to stay out, as did Mark Webber and Lewis Hamilton. He dropped to fifth but managed to keep his tires in good shape and get to the flag. When the others pitted only Vettel was able to stay ahead, leaving Alonso in second.
