F1 2014 Alternative Championships: Round 14/19 (Singapore) – Oh what a night

LEWIS HAMILTON’S victory at the Singapore Grand Prix saw the Englishman take the lead in the drivers’ championship standings for the first time since the Spanish Grand Prix in May.

The Mercedes driver is now three points ahead of his team-mate Nico Rosberg, who had a disastrous race. The German had to retire at the first round of pit-stops as his car was “contaminated by a foreign substance” according to his team.

Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel finished a seasons-best second, with Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo just behind him in third, a second ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

The race hit the two hour limit, meaning its distance was one lap short at 60.
