 2019 RACE RECAP

Charles Leclerc took a third consecutive pole position, but it was Sebastian Vettel who took a record-breaking fifth Singapore Grand Prix victory.

Charles Leclerc dominated in qualifying, securing a third consecutive pole position and starting alongside Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton came under pressure from Sebastian Vettel on the first lap, but was able to stay ahead. Further back, Carlos Sainz picked up a puncture following contact with Nico Hulkenberg. Vettel and Max Verstappen were first of the front runners to pit, with Leclerc pitting from the lead on the next lap. But Vettel’s pace advantage saw him pull off the undercut, much to Leclerc’s dismay. As the two Mercedes pitted, Antonio Giovinazzi found himself in the lead of the race for Alfa Romeo, but Vettel soon found a way past the Italian. Another Renault made contact, this time Daniel Ricciardo on former race leader Giovinazzi. The Australian picked up a puncture as a result. The Safety Car came out following contact between Romain Grosjean and George Russell, with the Williams driver recording the first retirement of his career. Lance Stroll picked up a puncture after the restart, while Sergio Perez pulled off in the other Racing Point after being ordered to stop by the team. Kimi Raikkonen was then forced out of the race following a collision with Daniil Kvayt, bringing out the Safety Car once more. Vettel was unphased by the restarts, keeping his cool to claim his first win of the season. Leclerc and Verstappen completed the podium, while Kevin Magnussen picked up the Fastest Lap at the event for the second year in a row.
