Hamilton Wins Singapore GP

After conquering the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, Lewis Hamilton is heading towards his fifth world championship, which would equal Juan Manuel Fangio.

This track has been one of the worst for Mercedes in recent years, but a wonderful drive from the Englishman has ensured he leads the standings by 40 points with six races to go.

Try as he might, Sebastian Vettel was unable to manoeuvre himself into a good enough position to attack Hamilton, and on lap 15, Ferrari called him to the pits to put him on ultra soft tyres for a more immediate benefit.

However, he not only couldn’t prevent Hamilton from retaining first place (lap 16), but Verstappen overtook him on lap 17 and relegated him to third.

Frankly, that compound offered nothing.

Alonso 7th and Sainz 8th, in an excellent race

Fernando Alonso applied himself well and a seventh placed finish was respectable for the Spaniard.

Carlos Sainz stuck close to Alonso to imitate the same drive, which included the same pit strategy, and he eventually finished in eighth position.
