Singapore grand Prix 2016: Results of the race

Red Bull 2016the lights go off in the Singapore GP F1 2016, the artificial light shines on this track night so nice and the cars come out launched. During the early stages of the race, we have seen some touches, between those involved has been the Spanish driver Carlos Sainz Jr., who got yesterday a very good 6th square, and today it has lost positions by the touch with Hulkenberg. Bad luck for Carlos, who has finally had to be satisfied with 0 points. By the way, as expected, by these touches the Safety Car has been present…

In relation to Mercedes, the constant messages of concern on the radio to encourage their drivers to take care on the brakes, since the turns very early on. This could make one think that they had serious problems and might not finish the race, that the spectre of Singapore would become the team of the star, but have finally been able to make podium both. Hamilton with a third place and Nico Rosberg at the top, becoming the leader of the championship.

Mercedes Singapur 2016Perhaps the messages have given a bit more flavor to the race, keeping the viewer glued without losing detail to see if the cars silver ended the appointment with points or with a zero. Also the Ferrari team has been rubbed their hands when they hear these messages and have been encouraged to Kimi Räikkönen to tighten to get closer to Hamilton, getting to be in front, but in a very bad strategy, the team from Maranello has been shot in the foot and has made Kimi come out after Hamilton in a stop in box…

In regards to McLaren-Honda, one of lime and another of sand for the team. The past year suffered despite the fact that they had great hopes for this circuit, and this year has been no less. Button has been the worst part, having to leave. On the other hand, Fernando Alonso has had a magnificent start advancing some positions and coming to think in the podium. But the performance has not been the best, nor stop what has been, and has finally finished in 7th position.
