For the second time the F1 cars raced with a background of the night sky and on a track saturated with super bright night-sun lights. That can only mean one thing; They’re back in Singapore! Before the race many were wondering if Alonso could repeat his ill-gotten win from last year or if instead the Brawn GP cars would continue their domination. However it seemed that almost all the drivers on the grid had trouble finding grip in Singapore’s tight, low speed corners. There were more than a few crashes during practice and qualifying. In fact both Brawn GP cars had a date with the wall at one point or another over the weekend.
Though, there was one driver who seemed to find harmony with the tight turns and high speed straights of Singapore, and that was Lewis Hamilton. He qualified on the pole on Saturday and that was all he needed. He lead the race practically from start to finish never getting a proper challenge from Brawn GP or Red Bull F1. He finished a full 10 seconds ahead of runner-up Timo Glock and third place Fernando Alonso. Check out the video below for the post-race wrap up.
