McLaren's Lewis Hamilton led from start to finish at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Toyota's Timo Glock secured his highest placing this season coming in second with Renault's Fernando Alonso coming home in third.

Championship leader Jenson Button bounced back after a disappointing qualifying session to finish fifth, ahead of his teammate and rival for the title Rubens Barrichello who finished sixth.

The result means that Button extends his lead over the Brazilian by one point to 15 points with three rounds of the championship to go.

Button can now secure the drivers' championship in Japan if results go his way.

Sebastian Vettel who was chasing Hamilton for the first half of the race eventually finished fourth after incurring a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pit lane.

Apart from Jenson Button slightly extending his lead over Rubens Barrichello, the story of the weekend was the return to form of Timo Glock and Toyota. It equals the German's best finish in a race (at Hungary in 2008) and recaptures the form he showed in the season's first four races.

The win moves Hamilton up one place to sixth in the drivers' championship with 37 points. Glock's eight points moves him up three places from 12th to ninth.
