Rosberg and Ricciardos tyres

    championship with a superb victory at the Singapore Grand Prix, holding off
    intense late pressure from the charging Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo to secure
    his third win in a row.Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton finished third after a
    late strategy call shuffled him ahead of Kimi Raikkonen but inadvertently blew
    the race between Rosberg and Ricciardo wide open. Raikkonen had to settle for
    fourth despite overtaking Hamilton for position on track earlier in the race,
    with Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel mounting an impressive comeback drive
    from last to fifth, ahead of Red Bulls Max Verstappen in sixth. Fernando Alonso
    secured seventh for McLaren ahead of Sergio Perez, who adopted a clever strategy
    to jump from 18th on the grid to eighth at the end of the race. A spirited drive
    from Daniil Kvyat was rewarded with two points in ninth ahead of Renaults Kevin
    Magnussen who took the last point on offer in tenth.The story of the raceIt was
    a Hamilton pit stop on lap 45 that transformed a processional race into a
    nail-biting finish. The world champion had lost position to Raikkonen at Turn 10
    12 laps earlier and that forced the Mercedes pit wall to think laterally to try
    to move him back ahead. Hamilton was shifted from a sedate two-stop strategy on
    to an aggressive three-stopper, taking on super-softs with 16 laps remaining to
    try to attack the Ferrari in front. Rather than allow Hamilton to attack on
    track Ferrari reacted by pitting Raikkonen a lap later, but by that time
    Hamilton had set a blistering pace on his outlap and the Finn emerged behind the
    Mercedes as he rejoined the track on fresh rubber. In isolation the strategy
    worked perfectly for Hamilton, but the Mercedes pit wall probably hadnt have
    banked on it impacting Rosbergs race a further 10 seconds up the road.By
    Hamilton and Raikkonen pitting, it effectively opened up second-placed
    Ricciardos strategy options, allowing him to make an extra pit stop for faster
    tyres without losing track position. He did just that on lap 47, taking on
    super-soft tyres and returning to the track in second place, 25 seconds behind
    Rosberg. The gap appeared to be big at the time but Ricciardo was immediately
    three seconds per lap faster than Rosberg using his fresher, softer tyres and
    set about reeling in the leader. The maths was adding up for Ricciardo to close
    onto Rosbergs gearbox in the final two laps, but a combination of traffic, some
    solid laps from Rosberg and Ricciardos tyres starting to fade left him just
    short at the line. With a slim margin of 0.4s, Rosberg just held on to take one
    of the most memorable wins of his career.Behind the top two Hamilton was also
    able to hold off Raikkonen for third, after the Finn was unable to forge a
    repeat of his Turn 10 heroics in the closing stages. Vettels race to fifth
    revolved around a long stint on softs at the start followed by two attacking
    stints on ultra-softs to cut through the field. Alonso made up positions during
    a chaotic start that saw Carlos Sainz swerve to avoid a slow starting Verstappen
    and clip Nico Hulkenberg, who spun off into the wall. Force India lost one car
    in the melee but also used the resulting safety car to switch teammate Perez
    from the ultra-softs to the softs, effectively putting him on a one-stop
    strategy for the remainder of the race that allowed him to move through the
    field as others pitted.Verstappen dropped from fourth to eighth as a result of
    his bad start and had to engage in a series of heated battles to work his way
    back up to sixth by the end of the race. Two of those battles happened to be
    with the man he replaced at Red Bull earlier this year, Daniil Kvyat, and
    provided much of the entertainment in the early part of the race as the Russian
    gave hardly any room -- and even less respect -- for the Red Bull behind.
    Verstappen finally made the move stick and went on to pull a solid move on
    Alonso for seventh. Cheap Jerseys
