F1 Top Five at Singapore

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso edged out Sebastian Vettel for the starting order in today's Singapore GP.

They were followed by Hamilton-Button-Webber in that order.

There are 125 points available for the winner of the remaining five races.

The current order in the drivers championship is Webber-Hamilton-Alonso-Button-Vettel.

The F1 points system gives 25 points to the winner then 18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1.

If they finish in grid order today, the standings will be Webber 197 - Hamilton 197 - Alonso 191 - Vettel -181 - Button 177.

This is unlikely of course but a review of  the points system is a good indicator of current form and its effects.

Based on the last race, the two McLaren's will out-drag the front row with Button leading Hamilton after the first bend.  Hamilton will be slightly nervous after his accident with Massa at Monza on lap one.  However Massa starts at the back of the grid in Singapore after gearbox problems so is well out of the way.
