Singapore F1 Grand Prix 2015 Results: Winner, Standings, Highlights and Reaction

Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 20 Sep 2015

Sebastian Vettel led from the front in a dominant display to claim victory in Sunday's stop-start Singapore Grand Prix, where championship leader Lewis Hamilton was forced to retire due to engine problems.Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo finished second to the four-time world champion despite making his best attempts to hound down his lead, whileKimi Raikkonen placed third in Ferrari's first double-podium race of 2015.Vettel started in pole position and never looked like losing his lead in what was an excellent display from the German, with Hamilton's 34th lap retirement serving as the icing on Ferrari's cake.Read on for recap and reaction to Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix, complete with full results from the Marina Bay Street Circuit and look to the overall drivers' standings, per the official Formula One Twitter account:Vettel qualified on pole and took full advantage of his position, storming out of the blocks in textbook fashion to leave his pursuers chasing fumes.In a show of form closer to what fans were used to seeing during his days at Red Bull circa 2011, he opened up a three-second cushion over former team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen was stalled at the start but made good progress from a one-lap disadvantage, but Vettel's pace after the opening 10 laps only further boosted Ferrari's hopes for victory, per Formula One:Tyre tactics would come to play a large role in the script, however, as teams began to make the first of their pit-stops, while a number of safety car laps provided unexpected delays.Some of the race's major drama emerged from the pits, too, as Felipe Massa collided with Force India's Nico Hulkenberg upon re-entering for the 14th lap, putting an end to the latter's race:Hulkenberg wasn't pleased with how he was forced to leave the race and told BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie:"No good news, that's for sure. The incident, he's coming out of the pits,the way I see it I was ahead. I was aware he was coming out of the pits but I was ahead."The race got back underway after the safety car did its rounds and Vettel proved unrelenting after that lull in proceedings, resuming the action with a similarly vicious pace.The greatest controversy was still to come, though, and after dropping through the field due to power failures around the 28th lap, Hamilton eventually decided to save his engine and leave the race after 34 laps, per ESPN F1:It provided Ferrari with some relief and the opportunity to take a considerable leap in the constructors' standings, with Kimi Raikkonen also enjoying good form in third as he sought just his second podium finish of the campaign.Just as Hamilton was forced to record his first non-finish of the 2015 season, so too was Massa after F1 Racing on NBC reported technical concerns had made it too difficult for the Brazilian to find the right gear.The safety car was called back out after a man picked a bizarre moment to traipse along the side of the track, per Pirelli Motorsport, after which it was a fight to the finish for all left in the race.McLaren's Jenson Button was making his advance through the places prior to that incident, but went into the back of Lotus' Pastor Maldonado as the field came together, leading the latter's team to post this tweet:Vettel encountered no such issues, though, and was finally permitted to get back up to full speed after the safety car left once again.Despite his disastrous delay at the races start, Verstappen stormed back to register Sundays fastest lap late on, and the 17-year-old can hold his head high in having battled the odds to finish eighth.Former British great Nigel Mansell tweeted his appreciation of Verstappens accomplishment and rightly tipped a bright future for Toro Rossos teenage sensation:Unfortunately for the youngster, Ricciardo was in no mood to take prisoners and was the first driver to break the one minute and 51 seconds mark with a lap time of 1:50:623.The difference between this Ferrari triumph and those that occurred in Malaysia and Hungary earlier this year is that Vettel never looked likely to be toppled from his perch.Of course, some will argue Hamilton's premature exit gave the team a better chance, but Ricciardo proved a pest in his own regard.Vettel wouldn't be broken, though, and a 42nd career victory sees him surpass Ayrton Senna's record and revive Ferrari's hopes of staging a late rush at 2015 success.
