It's all over! Sebastian Vettel has won the Singapore Grand Prix in dominant fashion with Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull in P2 and Kimi Raikkonen in P3.
...
Vettel is holding tight onto his lead. Romain Grosjean has locked up with one lap to go.
...
And another retirement.. Maldonado retires as well, but it's not a crash.
...
Yet another double retirement for McLaren as Jenson Button will also retire. "We're taking too much risk with the gearbox", say McLaren engineers to Button.
...
...
Severe front wing damage for Jenson Button, who apologises to Romain Grosjean for colliding into the rear of the Lotus driver. More debris, so possibility of the safety car again. Max Verstappen of Toro Rosso is in the points now.
...
Your 'Happy Wanderer' at the Marina Bay Circuit, who just so casually has caused the safety car to be deployed.

Incredible. A man casually strolls down the track and the safety car is deployed. "We're going to the end" say Mercedes engineers to Nico Rosberg.
...
A clean move by Sergio Perez who gets Romain Grosjean to go P9 36 laps into the race.
...
Investigation appears to show a gearbox failure that has caused Fernando Alonso to retire.
...
4 retirements so far. First to go was Nico Hulkenberg who collided with Felipe Massa. Both retired, followed by reigning champion Lewis Hamilton. Now Fernando Alonso has retired as McLaren's woes continue.
...
...
Reigning champion Lewis Hamilton is OUT of the Singapore Grand Prix as engine problems catch up with him. A problem with his pedal is likely, says Martin brundle.
...
Nico Hulkenberg and Felipe Massa are both out of this race. Hamilton is also having a bad race and says he wishes he could just "start again next week."
...
Push, push, say Ferrari to Kimi Raikkonen who is currently in P3 behind Ricciardo.
...
"We're going to retire this lap," say Williams to Felipe Massa, who is out.
...
Serious problems for Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton who has serious problems. Mercedes say they "can't see anything electrical" but say he has "multiple issues". He has been overtaken by Rosberg, Kvyat, Bottas and Sergio Perez. Reigning champion currently in P10.
...
...
"Vettel is not pushing right now" say Red Bull engineers to Ricciardo. It appears the German is doing this to minimise tyre degradation, and wants to stick to a two-stop strategy to win.
...
Bad news for Force India fans. Following an investigation of the incident between Massa and Hulkenberg, stewards have held Hulkenberg responsible. He will have three grid place drops at the next event - which is the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka next week.
...
A two stop strategy for Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton one-third of the way into the race.
...
The safety car is now gone. Vettel's lead over Ricciardo in P2 has shortened significantly, however, and he will fight to hold on to it.
