As Raikkonen and Verstappen came to a sudden halt at turn one - colliding with an unfortunate Fernando Alonso in the process - Vettel managed to keep his Ferrari on the straight and narrow.

Vettel stormed to pole on Saturday with Hamilton all the way down in fifth with the German safe in the knowledge that he would regain the lead in the Drivers' Championship with a fifth victory at Marina Bay.

Race Control will talk to the drivers and assess footage before dishing out any subsequent penalties.

The effort that went into that lap was apparent as Vettel let out an adrenaline-fuelled whoop on the team radio and he was initially breathless as he answered questions on the main straight immediately after getting out of his auto.

"Then the next thing there was a bump on the side and I saw Kimi's auto, so I don't know what happened". We're not in the race and that's a pity, we can't show the pace we have.

"I capitalised on the incident". We were fortunate with what happened with the Ferraris at the beginning but I could not be happier.

He said: 'I think I have damage on the front left.' The race engineer replied: 'Big damage on the sidepod, stop the auto.

While the three leaders were out on the spot, Alonso tried to continue after the resulting safety vehicle, but his McLaren was too damaged and he had to retire.


Carlos Sainz Jr secured a career best fourth place finish for Toro Rosso and led Sergio Perez across the line who finished in fifth place for Force India. Lewis is leading the race and the three of us are out.

The Briton's description of how he felt hustling his Mercedes around the streets of the city-state could also apply to his hopes of staying ahead in the championship after Sunday's race.

The FIA said it will investigate the accident after the race.

In contrast, Verstappen moved to lay the blame at Vettel's door.

Alonso, meanwhile, bravely continued but retired on lap 9.

Hamilton surged to the front - with Red Bull's Ricciardo also a beneficiary - and a timely reminder from his team to get the vehicle home in one piece was heeded, making last year's runner-up the heavy favourite for the title with six rounds to go, even after Marcus Ericsson's spin led to another outing from the safety auto.

Hamilton had a healthy advantage of 9.6 seconds when Sauber's Marcus Ericsson spun and stopped on Anderson Bridge, bringing out a third safety vehicle and wiping out the Briton's lead.
