|Podium and five Renault engines in the top ten in USA Grand Prix|
| Sebastian Vettel secured second position in the United States Grand Prix today, securing the 2012 Constructors' title for the Red Bull Racing-Renault partnership.
Sebastian started the inaugural race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, from pole position and controlled the race until lap 42 of 56 when Lewis Hamilton managed to get past and steal the win by just 0.6secs. Sebastian now takes a 13 point advantage over drivers' title rival Fernando Alonso, who finished in third position, into the final round of the championship in Brazil next week.
Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean finished in sixth and seventh positions respectively for the Lotus F1 Team. Kimi was running in the top four in the first part of the race, but lost some time in his second stint and was overtaken by Massa and Button. Romain recovered well from a spin on lap five and an early pit stop that dropped him to the rear of the field to give the team a double points finish and consolidate fourth position in the constructors' championship.
Williams F1 Team's Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna passed the flag in ninth and tenth to give Renault engines five of the top 10 positions. The result, the team's second consecutive points finish, came after a difficult first lap and a tight battle between the two in the closing stages of the race.

|SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX PREVIEWSINGAPORE – Character counts for a lot in F1, and for any new circuit on the F1 calendar, the establishment of a recognizable identity is half the battle in attracting a fan base and holding on to your slot on the schedule. We'll spare the blushes of those that have fallen by the wayside and instead point to Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina and Austin's COTA as two places that have done a decent job of building a good identity – one as high tech, the other down home, over the past few years.|
