2016 Singapore GP Post-Race Stats

One of the best races for a while that one with the top two being separated by half a second at the line, one more lap and the race may well have had a different ending.

Nico Rosberg took pole position with Daniel Ricciardo alongside on the front row with Hamilton starting third. Rosberg won on his 200th GP and was leading the race for all but two laps during pit stops. Ricciardo finished in second and for the past ten to 15 laps was chasing Rosberg down, gaining 2.5 seconds most laps and finishing just half a second behind at the line. Hamilton finished third, Raikkonen fourth and Vettel, after starting the race in 22nd, finished an incredible fifth after gaining 17 positions.

Grosjean was due to start from the pit lane after issues with his Haas but unfortunately couldn’t even make it that far and didn’t start the race. Things weren’t much better for Hulkenberg either, unable to make the first corner in what looked like an accident from an online game of F1 2016.

Daniil Kvyat had a return to form, brilliantly holding off Max Verstappen for five laps until Verstappen pitted, and eventually finished the race in ninth, his best finish since returning to Toro Rosso and his first points finish since Silverstone.


Just one change, but it is quite a big one, Rosberg takes back the lead of the championship and drops Hamilton down to second. In the Constructors’ there is again just one change as Force India and Williams swap places, AGAIN.
