Race Recap: Vintage Vettel crushes the field in Singapore

1 Comment

The Singapore Grand Prix rarely fails to entertain, and yesterday’s race proved to be no exception. Sebastian Vettel rolled back the clock and delivered a crushing victory reminiscent of his Red Bull heyday back in 2013, marking his third with Ferrari.

After producing a near-perfect pole lap on Saturday, Vettel controlled the race from the front, managing his tires as two safety car periods threatened to bring the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg into contention for the win.

Ultimately though, none of them could get the measure on Vettel, who crossed the line after two hours of racing to celebrate a well-earned victory that keeps his faint title hopes alive.
