The season long fight between the Mercedes drivers has ebbed this way and that, but after winning the Singapore night race, Nico Rosberg moved back into the lead of the championship after relinquishing it in Hungary. The gap between the two is just eight points however, so there's still a lot to play for!

Behind them, Daniel Ricciardo is sitting in a comfortable third place, whilst the two Ferrari drivers are engaged in their own inter-team fight - Vettel currently ahead by five points.
