Lewis Hamilton takes the control of the Singapore Grand Prix qualifying and race, but he unfortunately retired from the race on the lap 23, due to gear-box failure. He made a clean start and expand two seconds gap with Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton’s DNF cost his driver championship standing, he has dropped from second to fourth in the title standing.

“It’s heart-breaking not to have finished the race,” he said.

“We definitely had the pace to win and, in fact, before I retired I was cruising – just managing the gap back to Seb (Sebastian Vettel). Then I started to experience difficulty with the gearshift, then I lost third gear and then the box kept dropping into neutral.

“Obviously, I was disappointed, but the good thing we can take away from this weekend is that we have extremely good pace.

“As a result, I think we can really attack in the next few races. It’s going to be hard to close the gap to guys like Fernando [Alonso] and Sebastian, especially when they keep finishing race after race, but I’ll never give up.

“There are six more races, and I need to go and win all six. I’ll fight until the end.”
