Mercedes’ British pilot Lewis Hamilton won the Singapore Grand Prix, which is the 14th race of Formula 1 season. The details of the race and the sequence of the events that changed the course of the races are our news!
Lewis Hamilton appreciated the complex well!
Hamilton, who started the race at the 5th place and said he would force him to “reduce the damage”, rose to a leading position after the start of carambola. The British pilot, who knows how to protect the wet track, succeeded in seeing the checkered flag in first place, not losing sight of the security car periods.
Red Bull pilot Daniel Ricciardo ran a step back in the race he started, but he could not reach the leader’s tempos and finished second. Mercedes pilot Vallteri Bottas filled the last step of the podium with a tireless race.
Toro Rosso pilot Carlos Sainz, who started in 10th place in Singapore, finished fourth in the race with his and his team’s best result this season. Following him was Force India’s Sergio Perez, followed by Renault’s first-time pilot Jolyon Palmer.
Stoffel Vandoorne of the McLaren will race seventh in the Renault motor racing next season, while Williams’s rookie pilot Lance Stroll finishes eighth. The final points of the race went from Romain Grosjean from Haas to Esteban Ocon from Force India.
In the first round, the front group got mixed up, the Ferraris threw towels!
