  1. Thanks and goodbye

    Well that was all kinds of fun. The first ever wet night race promised to be dramatic and boy did it deliver.

    Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen's pincer move on Max Verstappen will stand as a defining moment in this year's title race, with their triple retirement allowing Lewis Hamilton to come through for a controlled victory that takes him 28 points clear of Vettel in the title race with six races remaining.

    Vettel looked utterly crestfallen in his post-crash interviews. You suspect he knows this was the moment where his hopes of a fifth world title went up in smoke, and Hamilton's dreams of a fourth came sharply into focus.

    There'll be plenty of fallout from this race in the hours and days ahead, and we'll be sure to keep you up to speed on these pages.

    I'll leave you with the defining image of the race and possibly the season.

    We'll see you in Malaysia in two weeks.

  2. Ferrari's first ever first-lap double retirement

    It's taken 67 years, nearly 1,000 grands prix and 108 drivers, the likes of Ascari, Fangio, Hawthorn, Surtees, Lauda, Andretti, Villenueve, Prost, Mansell and Schumacher have come and gone, but Ferrari have finally suffered the ignominy of having two drivers retire on the opening lap of a race.

    Now that has been a long time coming.

  3. Vote result

    It was a familiar end to the race for Fernando Alonso as he retired, but are better things around the corner?

    We asked you to vote on how McLaren will do with Renault engines next season and 62% of you think they will pick up a few podiums in 2018.

  4. Meanwhile...

    The official timing computer is still going rogue.

  5. 'Max should be exonerated from any blame'

    Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, speaking to Sky Sports about the first-lap incident involving Max Verstappen and the two Ferraris: "Anyone who tries to put blame on Max Verstappen for that needs their eyes testing.

    "He told me he held a straight line and tried to get out of the way but they came so quickly from either side.

    "Max should be exonerated from any blame for that incident."

  6. Read the race report

    Andrew Benson has the unenviable task of making sense of all of that, and of course he will do the usual top-drawer job.

    The race report is available to read here.

    I suspect we will have many more stories to come for you as the evening wears on.

  7. 'An incredible race'

    Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda, speaking to Sky Sports: "First corner was incredible. Lewis did an incredible race. It was amazing how the Mercedes car performed in these difficult conditions."

  8. Post update

    More from Lewis Hamilton: "You are just focused on winning. I needed it to rain and as soon as it did I knew where I was going to finish. I knew I had the pace when it rains, just not in the dry."

  9. 'Plenty of races to come'

    Valtteri Bottas, P3: "Of course for us it was very good damage limitation today. The car was working better than expected and I was just waiting for opportunities. I struggled in the wet but in the dry it was pretty good.

    "There are still plenty of races to come and plenty of opportunities. Sebastian Vettel is my next target."

    After whipping up the crowd, Jordan then turns to Daniel Ricciardo, pointing out that this was the Australian's fourth Singapore podium:

    "I can't win the bloody thing! I am trying," Ricciardo replies. "We didn't have the Friday pace, little disappointed to miss out on a win but I am still grateful with another podium.

    "I watched the chaos unfold in front of me. It was probably good that I had a bad start. It looked like three tried to go into one. I don't know whose fault it was."

  11. 'We were fortunate'

    Race-winner Lewis Hamilton has been speaking to Eddie Jordan, whose trousers-on-fire interview style has clearly not waned with the passing of time:

    "I want to congratulate my team, they did a fantastic job," says Hamilton. "We struggled yesterday and we had no idea what would happen today. We were fortunate with what happened with the Ferraris at the beginning but I could not be happier.

    "I capitalised on the incident. Who would know what would happen? Daniel put up a really good fight today. I hoped I would get to race Sebastian at the beginning. Of course it is better the way it is."

    Hamilton is bounding around on the podium like a kid on Christmas morning, the cat the got the cream and a dog with two, er, tails, all wrapped into one.

    A very happy man.
