The Ferrari driver, who secured pole position the day before, fought off strong competition from British trio Lando Norris, Lewis Hamilton, and George Russell. Sainz's victory marks a significant moment for him and his team.
Lewis Hamilton's Third-Place Finish
Lewis Hamilton secured a podium finish by coming in third place. The Mercedes driver found himself in a fierce battle with his compatriot Lando Norris and teammate George Russell. Despite a late mistake from Russell, Hamilton managed to hold his own and secure a well-deserved spot on the podium.
Controversy Surrounding Hamilton's Position
Hamilton's race was not without controversy as a late braking error saw him running wide into Turn One. This led to frustration from Russell and Norris, who believed Hamilton had gained an unfair advantage. Eventually, Hamilton yielded and allowed both drivers to pass, dropping him back to fifth place.
Safety Car Shakes Up the Race
A collision between Logan Sargeant and the barriers caused a safety car deployment, shaking up the race. Most drivers took the opportunity to pit for fresh tires. Russell and Hamilton also made pit stops but returned to the track in the same position, losing ground on the leaders.
Last-Lap Drama for Russell
With just one lap to go, Russell attempted a bold move to overtake Norris but ended up crashing into the barriers at turn 10. This unfortunate incident ended his race and promoted Hamilton to third place behind Norris and Sainz.
Overall, the Singapore Grand Prix was filled with excitement, drama, and unexpected twists. Carlos Sainz's victory showcases Ferrari's potential for future success, while Lewis Hamilton's strong performance solidifies his position as a formidable competitor.
