#4 Kevin Magnussen's lap at Singapore

The Singapore GP was a faultless drive from the perspective of Lewis Hamilton. Yet, there were some massive gains from the other drivers and teams as such.

For starters, Ferrari were lucky to receive a reality check that maybe, under bright shiny lights at the Marina Bay, they didn't have the fastest car, as expected all weekend. They weren't able to stop Mercedes, clearly the faster machines on high-speed corners and the long main straight.

Moreover, while there were gains for the others on the grid, nothing may have been more beautiful or fulfilling than the massive gain that Haas's Kevin Magnussen clinched.

Interestingly, in a car that was neither the fastest nor close to being the fastest, the often reclusive Kevin Magnussen was able to extract the fastest lap of the Grand Prix.

It was on Lap 50 where Magnussen would go at 1:41:905, and hence was able to set the fastest lap record for Singapore in 2018.
