Drivers and team's comments after the race.
A strong Singapore Grand Prix for the team as Fernando brought home six points in seventh position. Stoffel, starting from 18th, drove a solid race despite it being relatively incident-free up front, to finish in 12th.
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport score 37 points as Lewis wins under the lights in Singapore.
Both drivers made clean starts with Carlos passing Nico into turn one then holding that position in the early running. Carlos – on his 75th Grand Prix start - enjoyed a quiet race from there, running a long first stint on the Ultrasoft tyre, before comfortably finishing in eighth for the second time in as many races.
After a difficult session yesterday for Stoffel, both drivers had a smooth final practice session where they were able to complete their final tests before qualifying. Stoffel, in particular, was able to recoup some of the mileage lost in yesterday’s first practice session and spend valuable time dialling in the car to the track conditions. Overnight tweaks to the set-up of both cars had been completed successfully, and Fernando and Stoffel finished in 10th and 15th positions respectively.
Lewis storms to pole position in the heat of Singapore.
Although Stoffel had a difficult start to the day, both drivers ended Friday satisfied with the progress made throughout the two sessions. Stoffel ended the first practice session in 20th after only a handful of laps due to a suspension issue, which took some time to locate and fix. He also suffered a hydraulic leak shortly before the end of running. On the other side of the garage, Fernando had a smooth session and set the 14th fastest time.
