Vettel fastest in Singapore GP final practice, Hamilton 3rd

Formula One World Championship

"There a insane amount of strategies that they go through and I think there's thousands or millions simulations that they go through", said Hamilton. The guys, they are responsible for the different areas, they could think, 'OK, if he's pointing the finger at Sebastian, next time it's my turn.' It's not what I want.

There has, however, been a safety vehicle period in every race in Singapore since it joined Formula One in 2008 and it was deployed on the opening lap after Sergio Perez pushed his Force India team mate Esteban Ocon into a wall after Turn Three.

The German four-time world champion used his superior Ferrari power to outdrag Verstappen down Raffles Boulevard and just managed to nip past the Dutchman before the safety auto brought a temporary halt to hostilities on the first lap for the third year in succession in Singapore.

"You call it mistakes, but if you look in Formula One, everybody is making mistakes", the Ferrari boss said.

"I said before the weekend we can only beat ourselves, and this weekend we didn't get everything out of our package".

Juventus, chasing an eighth successive Serie A title, have 12 points, three ahead of Napoli. Just over 10 minutes after recording his first goal for the club, Ronaldo had his second.


Considering Vettel makes more mistakes than Hamilton, a 40-point gap looks a huge advantage with only six races left.

"I have optimism in that Ferrari tried to get through Q2 with ultras", he said.

And although Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo found themselves behind a Ferrari and a Mercedes in the cooler FP2, the duo believe they're still in the hunt for a strong result in Singapore.

"Going into detail, I don't think there's much point ... maybe with preparing the qualifying", he said. "I truly think we can deliver like this for the rest of the season, and that is the goal".

"No we are looking good compared to those around us", assured his race engineer Peter Bonnington. "It was a tough race, we got to the end but there's no celebrations today".

McLaren's Fernando Alonso came home in seventh, with Renault's Carlos Sainz and Nico Hulkenberg claiming eighth and 10th respectively, either side of Sauber's Charles Leclerc.

Hamilton's stunning pole Saturday was a record-extending 79th.

In a championship battle that could easily be decided by small mistakes, Sebastian Vettel made another on Friday night in Singapore.

The Briton emerged from that tailback with his lead intact - if a little narrower than before - and was soon putting space between himself and Verstappen once again when he hit clean air.

As Hamilton, Verstappen and Vettel sat comfortably in their positions, it was their team-mates who provided the entertainment in the closing laps.
