Rosberg defends from Ricciardo for race win

The Singapore race was not without a safety car, as anticipated, but it appeared a lot earlier than we might have expected. Nico Hülkenberg collided with a Toro Rosso on the first lap, crashing into the pit wall before he had made it more than a few metres. That brought out the safety car and paused the racing action.

Nico Rosberg led the way from pole position, and took race victory, which moved him back into the lead of the championship. Daniel Ricciardo chased the Mercedes to the line, but was unable to catch him, whilst Lewis Hamilton had to settle for third place. In the other Red Bull, Max Verstappen was doing battle with Daniil Kvyat, eventually getting past the slower car but not making it look easy.
