Max Verstappen’s long unbroken run of success came to an end under the lightbulbs of Singapore as Carlos Sainz took Ferrari’s first victory of the season with a consummate drive from pole position. Russell’s crash allowed Mercedes’ team-mate Lewis Hamilton to take third place. Sainz took the chequered flag 0.8sec ahead of Norris, who was 0.4 off Hamilton. ‘I had such good pace there at the end,’ said Hamilton. Russell’s best hope was a good start from second on the grid, but he was relatively slowly away, losing ground not only to Sainz but also to the other Ferrari of Charles Leclerc. Hamilton cut the opening chicane but had to hand places back to Russell and Hamilton. Sainz controlled the race with Russell a second and a bit back, with Norris third and Hamilton fourth.
