Formula One: Vettel out of Singapore GP as Hamilton leads

Share

Polesitter Sebastian Vettel appeared unaware of his team-mate's presence to the left of fellow front row starter Verstappen and, in moving over to cover the young Dutchman into turn one, pincered the Red Bull, forcing it to clip the rear of Raikkonen's Ferrari.

Vettel stormed to pole on Saturday with Hamilton all the way down in fifth with the German safe in the knowledge that he would regain the lead in the Drivers' Championship with a fifth victory at Marina Bay.

Hamilton's time of one minute 40.126 was way off the German's 1:39.491, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo the closest challengers to Ferrari in second and third places. "But let's see. I don't know how it is going to work".

Muhammad Khorasani, a spokesman of the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan, claimed responsibility for the attack. A Pakistani officials told the media that the incident occurred in Bajaur Agency's Loye Mamond area.

"Obviously we are not in the race, that's a pity, we can't show the pace that we have".

"It's a long lap - you gain a bit, you lose a bit, you kind of say I could've got more there - but I think the gap was, in the end, three or four tenths, it was quite significant. They might have to carry us out of the cars tomorrow, but I'm sure we'll have a great strong race and get some big points!" "I don't want to catch any of that stuff", he said. "So far I don't feel like I'm missing out", said the Briton, who has won six of 13 races this season and claimed a record 69th pole position.

Per BBC Sport's Andrew Benson, Englishman Hamilton had said ahead of the race he needed a "miracle" to limit the damage to his hopes of winning back the world title.

Also worth a punt today is both teams to score in the Clarets' visit to Anfield to take on Liverpool - get that at 21-20. The reality is that we have dropped a lot of points (at home) after three games but I am not anxious .

"If you are fighting for the world championship you shouldn't take those risks squeezing someone that much". Remarkably, Alonso was able to continue despite his McLaren having effectively been disembowelled, with entrails hanging from its left hand side, and ran just outside the points until the inevitable happened on lap nine and he was forced to retire.

Alonso lasted just a few laps before the damage sustained at the first corner forced him to retire, and Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat became the fifth man out when he ploughed nose-first into a barrier - prompting a second safety auto.

Valtteri Bottas has +750 odds to win on Sunday and those are very good odds for the third-place driver in the standings.
