Lewis Hamilton was unchallenged en route to his seventh victory of the season, while Kimi Raikkonen was just as impressive, having fallen to the back of the field with clutch issues. Sebastian Vettel again emerged as Mercedes' closest challenger, while the Williams duo also stood out of the rest, finishing in third and fourth places.
1. Lewis Hamilton
You cannot discount a driver who led from the very start to the very end in dominant style. To back off in the middle stint and still claim a 25 second victory - over a driver who has won multiple races this year - is impressive and a clear signal of intent to winning the title this year.
2. Kimi Raikkonen
To fall from second to last is heartbreaking, especially when all you've done is gone in a straight line. Well I say this, Kimi didn't really move anywhere. To fight back to P5 with some frankly brilliant overtakes were phenomenal and arguably a driver of the day performance #VintageKimi.
3. Daniel Ricciardo
A Red Bull may have speed and success in its DNA, however, current Renault power units do not. Without a win since Belgium 2014, the predicted divorce of Renault and Red Bull has been confirmed. Despite this, Ricciardo was able to drag the sluggish car to a high finish on a Mercedes and Ferrari track, like Hungary where the team finished second and third. Singapore should be a less Renault-unfriendly circuit and looking at Ricciardo’s P8 form, he could be one to watch.
4. Valtteri Bottas
He may not have achieved his podium finish, but had the pit strategy been reversed, he would have more than likely beaten his veteran teammate. The plucky Finn showed why he can give Raikkonen a run for his money and a future Tifosi star should he earn the contract for 2017.
5. Felipe Massa
In his own words he's getting, "too old for this". However, his performance and popular podium shows a man considered as one of Ferrari's own is back to his best and even his old rival Lewis Hamilton was happy to see the Brazilian back on the podium. His hard charging team mate Bottas came at him in the final few laps and to hold him off is no mean feat. So in the spirit of Italy Forza Felipe.
