Singapore GP 2012: Vettel wins after Lewis Hamilton retires

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel eases to victory in the Singapore GP after Lewis Hamilton is forced to retire his McLaren with gearbox failure.

Hamilton's team-mate Jenson Button finished second ahead of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who now leads Vettel by 29 points in the standings, while Force India's Paul Di Resta claimed his best-ever Formula 1 finish in fourth place.

The race at Marina Bay reached it's mandatory two-hour time limit after accidents involving HRT's Narain Karthikeyan and a collision between Michael Schumacher and Jean-Eric Vergne both brought out the safety car.
