fashion to win the 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix on
September 18, 20016, beating his nearest rival Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo by
just 0.4s. His Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton finiahsed third and with this
win Rosberg has now managed to come on top of the drivers’ table with an eight
points lead over Hamilton
Force India’s Serio Perez
managed to come in the first ten with an eight position. Unfortunately his team
mate Nico Hulkenberg was eliminated before the first corner in the initial part
of the race. Carlos Sainz of Toro Rosso in a sudden move tagged the rear of

At the end of the race, it was
sad to see Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari
missing the podium by a very narrow margin. His team mate finished a fifth
position. Young driver Max Verstappen was sixth for Red Bull, ahead of
McLaren's Fernando Alonso, with Force India’s Sergio Perez, Toro Rosso’s Daniil
Kvyat and Renault’s Kevin Magnussen completing the top ten.
After the incident in the
initial stages of the race, the safety car was immediately deployed, as it
became clear that Williams’ Valtteri Bottas was also carrying a left-rear
puncture and Jenson Button’s McLaren had damage to its right-front wing. Racing
resumed on Lap 3.
Lap 37 saw Bottas retiring his
car as it faced mechanical issues, primarily due to a seatbelt problem. In lap
45, McLaren’s Jenson Button also retired. Romain Grosjean of Haas failed to
take the start as his brake problem could not be sorted out in time.
