Vettel is driven to stretch lead as Singapore rolls up

Formula 1 Fans in the Cayman Islands meet at their usual pit stop, the Lone Star Bar & Grill, for the Singapore Grand Prix this Sunday.

The last race was the Italian two weeks ago, and apart from enjoying the action at the West Bay Road restaurant, club members raised $81 in cash donations for the Pines Retirement home.

Attendance from 8:30 a.m. includes a minimum donation of $2 and members are entered in a free raffle for prizes. The Pines is the charity recipient again this weekend.

The Formula 1 drivers’ championship looks likely to stay at Red Bull for the fourth consecutive time after Sebastian Vettel won the Italian race.

The German’s 53-point gap over Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who was second at Monza, looks insurmountable with only seven races remaining.

Ferrari already look resigned to conceding the title to Vettel, and last week confirmed Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen has agreed a two-year contract beginning next season.

Felipe Massa is ousted at Ferrari to make way for Raikkonen. The 33-year-old Finn won the world title with Ferrari in 2007, but was displaced by the arrival of Spaniard Alonso in 2010.
