Starting grid for the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix

0 Comments

0.007 seconds across a lap of over 100 seconds may not seem like a great amount, but it was all that Lewis Hamilton needed to secure his sixth pole position of the 2014 season in qualifying for the Singapore Grand Prix yesterday.

The British driver pulled a great final flying lap out of the bag to deny teammate and championship rival Nico Rosberg pole at the last possible moment on Saturday. Rosberg was less than impressed, shouting “dammit!” very loudly over the radio back to his engineer after learning the news.

However, with an all-Mercedes front-row, the stage is set for a thrilling race under the lights in Singapore, and with Red Bull and Ferrari both waiting in the wings to capitalise on any mistakes or problems for the Silver Arrows, the result is by no means a foregone conclusion.

You can watch all of the action from Singapore live on NBCSN from 7.30am ET today.

FROM THE STEWARDS’ OFFICE

  • Nothing major of note this weekend from the stewards. Nico Hulkenberg was hit with a fine for speeding in the pit lane during FP2, although it’s unlikely €200 will burn a hole in Force India’s pocket.
