Carlos Sainz of Ferrari won the Singapore Grand Prix to end the winning run of Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing winning run in the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship
McLaren’s Lando Norris and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton finished second and third respectively in the heavily contested encounter in Singapore which also saw Hamilton’s teammate George Russell crash out of the podium
Leading Formula 1 table topper, Max Verstappen finished fifth after a torrid week in Singapore
Sainz’s second win for Ferrari after last year’s British Grand Prix was the first time a Red Bull had failed to win since Russell won the penultimate race of last season in Brazil.
Verstappen now leads team-mate Sergio Perez by 151 points, which means he cannot win the title in Japan next weekend, as he would need to leave that race 180 points in front to do so, and only a maximum of 26 are available.
