What a massive midfield train. This could be a boring race.

I'm beginning to wonder if there's something stuck beneath the accelerator pedal.

Jesus, Hamilton and Vettel already 5s+ clear of JB? You'd almost think JB was under instruction to back up the pack to hurt Alonso's race, cos he's miles off the pace.

Singapore normaly is a boring race to me. This year seems no different so far.

There have been a few tv comments that the teams have no idea how the tyres will last. Probably a bit of Hamilton simply being faster and tyre conservation.

Remember his first stint at Monaco... I'm sure he is conserving his tyres.

They're all pacing themselves for now. The entertainment will come when the pitstops come. The end of the race should be when the most overtakes occur, so have some patience.

If I was feeling loopy I'd suspect Button has team orders to hold up the rest (Alonso).

I can't see how pitting on lap nine out of 61 is a viable strategy.

Button increasing his pace now to get in range for the pitstop window.

But he didn't. Schumachers pace is slightly worrying, to be honest.

Yeah, it's not formula 1, more like 'Pirelli Tyre Management Series 2012'

Vettel hit the cliff, Jenson caught up right next to him. And now he's stuck in traffic.

Red Bull better hope that traffic in front of Vettel clears soon, but for now I can't understand what they're doing. Risky.

I don't think they had a choice, Vettel had hit the cliff.
