Daniel Ricciardo still targeting win in Singapore

Daniel Ricciardo still targeting win in Singapore

The incident, in which Fernando Alonso was collateral damage after a brilliant start, brought out the Safety Car.

Vettel, who had been looking to reclaim the world championship lead from Lewis Hamilton, spun further ahead and lost his front wing, a crash that also ended his race.

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

It was remarkable that his auto was even in a fit state to continue, but the damage meant he was effectively racing blind. I saw Max and then I saw Kimi hitting the side of me. Hamilton was able to stop without losing the lead and, despite Red Bull's pace throughout the early part of the weekend, was seldom troubled by those behind him as claimed a 60th career win and, with it, an increased 28-point advantage in the title race. "I think right now I'm starting to cool off". "I definitely went in today thinking it was about damage limitation".

After it went in Hamilton had no trouble in pulling away from Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull, despite many expecting the Australian to mount a challenge, with Valtteri Bottas completing the podium places.

Carlos Sainz scored his best-ever result with fourth for Toro Rosso; Jolyon Palmer did the same as he finished sixth for Renault; and likewise Stoffel Vandoorne with seventh for McLaren.

Ricciardo said he would have to make the most of the start in order to stand a chance of winning on Sunday.

When asked after the incident if he felt the race should have been started under the Safety Car, Vettel replied: "I don't know".

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

"So there's two, for sure, opportunities and then one potential one if there is a safety auto", he said.

"That's not an excuse - if you're fighting for the world championship, you shouldn't take those risks to squeeze someone that much".

Mercedes declined to pit Hamilton under the safety auto but after the restart, he reeled off a string of fastest laps on the slowly drying track, extending his lead over Ricciardo.
