Fernando Alonso earned his first Formula One victory of the season in the series' first night race in Singapore. The race Sunday also saw one title contender falter and another scratch for a third-place finish.
When Alonso's Renault teammate Nelson Piquet Jr. wrecked early in the race, polesitter and leader Felipe Massa of Ferrari pitted, but he left his pit before his fueling was finished and drug the fueling hose down pit road. He was penalized for leaving the pit unsafely and eventually finished 13th.
Points leader Lewis Hamilton started second but fell back into the pack after the first pitstop and recovered to finish third. The McLaren driver now has a seven-point edge over Massa in the title hunt.
Nico Rosberg recovered from a 10-second stop-and-go penalty early in the race to finish second, his best career F1 result.
