The british take advantage of a rugged output that left out to Vettel to deal a important claw to World: 28 points of advantage
The spaniard finishes fourth, its best position in F1, in week of announcement of his signing for Renault; Alonso, KO by a stroke with Raikkonen
The night of Singapore is from its first episode in 2008, one of carambola (later punished) which crowned Renault of Alonso, one of major claims of World. A dazzling and glamorous adventure under floodlights of Marina Bay, which mutated into an ambush lethal when combined with a surprise guest: rain. Before first turn, chaos and confusion had taken command in first night race in wet. A violent clash between Raikkonen and Verstappen, who was sandwich between two Ferraris, he ended up dragging also to Vettel, whose stunned and damaged Ferrari ended up stamped against wall. One of aftershocks of that earthquake was ahead of McLaren of Alonso, barely, with chassis is badly wounded, was able to stay on track 10 laps more. Of that cataclysm initial came out powered Hamilton with a victory on Saturday, after his fifth place on grid, it was not in ir plans. Today is a strong leader with 28 points margin. And also came out strengned Carlos Sainz, a survivor, with class, lots of class, on back of a Toro Rosso that will go down at end of year to start his time at Renault. The spaniard provided with a colossal fourth. Its top in Formula 1. Your day/night more big: "it Takes! It takes! Let's go!". [Narration and classifications] [Album: Accident lethal Ferrari]
The case is that in worst weekend of Mercedes, on a road will often twist gesture to German squad, Hamilton dealt, almost unintentionally, a tremendous slap to championship. The English was enough to dodge trap that was found in that first corner and stay firm in face of stalking, dangerous, despite distance, Red Bull of Ricciardo. He managed as he often does, to perfection, times after safety car, with braking and sudden acceleration that is a distraction to ir opponents. The rest, with tire of rain, first, and smooth, as it was a drying track, already half of race, it was something like a walk triumphant to his seventh victory of season. That seems to be more decisive way of his fourth crown. The second lunge consecutive to impetuous heart of Ferrari.
Because roadsters red wept with rage in place where or times y had shed tears of joy. The picture of that Vettel exultant 2015 to this Vettel defeated by elements, abandoned by fortune. Who knows if in his farewell final of battle for a World that was well supported until summer. Things have changed, and a lot of, despite fact that Ferrari threatened to walk triumphant in Marina Bay.Sainz stalked podioCarlos Sainz, during his career in Singapore. ROSLAN RAHMANAFP-PHOTO
it Was night of a secondary that ended up become main actor. Carlos Sainz, one of pieces of domino effect McLaren-Renault-Toro Rosso, came to look with determination to podium in spite of always dangerous threat of Force India of Sergio Perez. He had come out victorious from deadly torn off and survived two-hour race on asphalt of Marina Bay. In midst of that anarchy, initially under rain and after dry, was settled in fourth place. A perfect position to reach drawer if Bottas would have had some dizziness.
There was, but Sainz reached its peak. A fourth position enhances sixth position that until now had as a roof -Monaco'17, Brasil, USA and Spain'16-. "Let's go, let's go! It takes, it takes!", y shouted on radio to tandem pilot and engineers of Toro Rosso. With six races ahead, spaniard has already accumulated more points (48) than in all of last season (46). A cheeky toast evening with which to celebrate his move to Renault for next season. Surpassing even Jolyon Palmer, man he replaced in team of diamond.
This time, Fernando Alonso non-failed engine, had no option to claim anything to computer. The push of Raikkonen in rugged first round left his McLaren badly wounded. Tenth abandonment of year in 13 races. "That blow was fatal, if we had continued on track...", he lamented pilot spaniard, twice a winner on track asian, and aware that of that overdose of anarchy might have rescued something important. It may be that most interesting thing from landing on team's british now three long years. While still leaving his future up in air, in spite of persecuted divorce between McLaren and Honda. A missed opportunity.
