Vettel's nearest non-Ferrari rival was Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull - 0.838s off the pace while holding a 0.010s margin over teammate Max Verstappen in fourth.

In Singapore, Vettel had started from pole only to crash on a rain-soaked first lap as Lewis Hamilton won from fifth on the grid to extend his championship lead.

"We just have to maximize every opportunity we get", Hamilton said, offering some sympathy to Vettel.

"Overall, it doesn't change anything for how we tackle the last six races".

But retired champion Nico Rosberg recovered to third past year after a spin at the start dropped him to the back of the field. "It's part of motor-racing", said Vettel putting a courageous face on the latest setback to strike his championship challenge.

I'm not fussed about the amount of points. "I have worked hard to prepare for this and to get to F1".

Moments later, Hamilton dipped the first kerb at the Turn7/8 double-right and lost the rear, pitching him into a spin and across the gravel. What's done is done. This time it is last year's runner-up, Max Verstappen.

For much of the season it has been the Ferrari driver who has had the upper hand. "I think the end of the second stint was looking a little bit better but underlying the auto was still having some big problems in some corners, I think Max was just managing the I don't think we had the pace". "Then we basically didn't race". We knew going into the race that we didn't have the quickest auto; our delta was Ferrari eight-tenths [of a second] faster than us, which they were, and the Red Bulls five, six tenths quicker than us, which they were.
