Welcome to F1Minute, it’s September 26th.
Lewis Hamilton took his pole position and turned it into a victory today, winning the Singapore Grand Prix in style. His nearest rival for the race was Vettel who had all kinds of problems, including his wing mirror falling off, debris flying everywhere after hitting the kerbs, and getting a drive through penalty for speeding in the pitlane. Elsewhere, Rosberg also faced a drive through for completely missing the white line upon exiting the pits. whilst Sutil and Heidfeld came together causing a safety car. This incident forced the BMW to retire which ends Heidfeld’s record of consecutive finishes.
Glock and Alonso kept their wits about them to join Hamilton on the podium, with the Spaniard dedicating his position to Flavio Briatore. Meanwhile, teammate Grosjean retired on the third lap, whilst other retirees included both Toro Rossos and Mark Webber, who spun off into the barriers.
Finally, Button finished ahead of Barrichello, extending his championship lead.
That’s all for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
