Championship standings after Singapore

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Lewis Hamilton extends his championship lead by six points but team mate Heikki Kovalainen is out of the championship reckoning.

Realistically the battle is now between Hamilton and Felipe Massa, with Kubica 20 points behind Hamilton.

Meanwhile McLaren have taken the lead in the constructors’ championship, thanks to Kimi Raikkonen crashing out of fifth place in the dying laps, and failing to score for the fourth race in a row.
