A day of two halves
There is always lots of action at Marina Bay, and today was no exception. Fernando drove a hard and determined race to finish in P7, and ‘best of the rest’: the next car home after the two Mercedes, the two Red Bulls and the two Ferraris. After making a good start, Jenson became embroiled in a start-line accident. Forced to pit for repairs and rejoin at the back. Towards the end of the race his engineers took the decision to stop his car due to worsening brake temperatures. It’s been a tough weekend in the garage, but on the day, both drivers and cars came out strong and fought hard on one of the most challenging circuits of the calendar.
