Grand Prix of Singapore: everything you need to know about Lewis Hamilton's lap

Grand Prix of Singapore: everything you need to know about Lewis Hamilton's lap

The Sunday race is live on radio 5 live and the BBC Sport website at 13:10 BST

Ferrari gave Lewis Hamilton the smallest indication for a goal in Singapore on Saturday and he shrank a beauty in the upper corner.

The round with which Hamilton captured the pole position for the Grand Prix of Singapore was so spectacular that he managed to call it "perhaps the most complete round I have ever done".

And with that he exploded the precedent that Singapore is the bogeycircuit of Mercedes.

The team has been working hard to heal the weaknesses of their car in Marina Bay, where it has traditionally struggled to become grip and a bit impractical.

But still, Hamilton's margin versus title rival Sebastian Vettel was a surprise for both the driver and the team. And also for Vettel.

Afterwards the face of the German and the short-sighted answers told their story.
