Carlos Sainz wins nail-biting Singapore F1 GP to end Max Verstappen’s streak

His victory ended Red Bull’s unbeaten streak this season at the 15th meeting. Russell led the assault but was caught out pushing too hard on the final lap, crashing out from third place. Sainz did brilliantly to hang on and Norris too drove a steely race, especially in defence from Russell at the end. Sainz led from Russell, Norris and Hamilton, all within just over a second, when Esteban Ocon pulled over with an engine failure prompting a virtual safety car on lap 43. Mercedes took a chance bringing in Russell and Hamilton for fresh tyres to attack in the final third of the race. Russell caught Leclerc on lap 52, taking out over a second a lap on the Ferrari and made the pass with ease a lap later and Hamilton swiftly followed.
