For Sebastian to clinch the title in Singapore!!
If he wins;
Fernando has to finish 4th, maximum
Jenson/Webber has to finish 3rd, maximum (If either finishes 2nd though; that means Vettel just has to take 1 point on them again)

If he comes 2nd;
Fernando has to finish 8th, maximum (yeah right; like Nando will finish 8th in Singapore)
Jenson/Webber has to finish 5th, maximum
Hamilton can't win

If he comes 3rd;
Fernando has to finish 9th, maximum
Jenson/Webber has to finish 7th, maximum

If he comes 4th;
Fernando has to finish 10th, maximum
Jenson/Webber has to finish 8th, maximum

If he comes 5th, no title yet.

No matter what happens, Lewis must finish ahead of Sebastian to stay in the championship hunt.

Here's a thought. If Lewis finishes behind Sebastian in Singapore, he is knocked out of the title running. If Seb wins Jenson finishing 2nd would keep him in the hunt. Do you think Lewis will be told to be the supporting act to Jenson?

I would think it's on the "straight" from turn 5 to turn 7 (where the Hamilton-Webber collision occurred last year) or onto the pit straight though I can't imagine anyone overtaking into turn 1 (not because of turn 1 itself, but because the last corner is fast)

13 - 14 is also possible, but I think it will be 5 - 7 as said.

Vettel from the back of the grid(some reason), DNF, crashes into Sutil. Nando wins Singapore for the 3rd time.


Edit:my mistake

Wow. He wins Singapore twice in a day? :P

Considering this season; Vettel's not likely to start from the back, and not likely to crash.

I don't think Vettel will win the Championship there because I believe (and hope :D ) Alonso will place in a better position of 4th position.

That's a very good possibility; seeing how strong Alonso is here. However we saw what Red Bull could do to Massa with the Webber Torpedo :P

Turn 1/2 and Stamford Grandstand will be the place to watch the race.
