Singapore GP – Race Result

Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton on the victory in the race today, well done in a “strange” race.

The result can be found below.


Starting tires:


What a mess at the start.

Kimi, Max, Vettel’s fault or just a race incident?


Standings after lap 2:

Alonso manages to continue the race after the hard hit he took from Max, just after the start crash Vettel spins around and destroy the car on what seems to be cooling liquid or gear oil leaking from the damaged Ferrari.



Lap 8, Alonso has to retire the car due to the damage from the incident in the start.
Too bad, Alonso meant that the McLaren Honda was good enough for a podium today.

Lap 11, Dani Kvyat is doing exactly what we expect him to do, crash out of the race …

Lap 14/15 – Safety car in after Kvyats car has been removed from the tire barriers.

Lap 26, the track is starting dry up, and the weather-forecast is no more rain.

Lap 37, Marcus Ericsson spin on the “bridge”. This brings out the safety car again, and Lewis Hamilton loses his 9-second gap to Daniel Ricciardo.

Then the lap count down was changed to timing, two hours rule. 28 minutes to go 😉


And the winner is Lewis Hamilton!
