After a rough start that saw Webber drop from second place to fourth was able to battle back and take third place, while Alonso finished fourth. Hamilton who battled back from 16th from a clash with Massa that resulted in a broken front wing and a drive through penalty to take fifth place. Force India's Di Resta took sixth place with an outstanding place, outpacing Rosberg. A frustrated Massa finished ninth, while Sergio Perez round out the top ten.
Michaelís race was brought to an early end after a collision with Sauber driver Sergio Perez:
He was about to go inside and lifted, and I was not expecting him to do that so early, and therefore hit him. Itís probably one of those race incidents which look more impressive from outside than from inside, as I am totally ok and my impact in the end was not too heavy. It was a pity because my car and the tyres worked well, and therefore the pace was very good. I will look ahead to the next races and hope to have better endings there.
After his seventh placed finish in Singapore, Nico reflected on his result:
The optimum today would have been sixth place but it didnít quite work out for us this weekend. Whilst we might not be happy with the outcome of our weekend here in Singapore, we will now work hard to improve the car for the next races here in Asia.
For Ross, the race turned out to be a fairly tough one for the team this evening.
