Lewis Hamilton was defiant after he was completely outshone by Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg throughout the Singapore Grand Prix weekend. But the reigning world champion should be concerned. Rosberg has never been better placed to win his first Formula 1 world title.
Rosberg put together the best race weekend of his F1 career. After a crash in first practice, he dialled the car in, beat Hamilton by a staggering 0.704 seconds in qualifying and then dominated the race from the front to snatch the championship lead for the first time this side of the summer break.
Some may say we've been here before. After the Belgian GP in 2014 Rosberg led Hamilton by 29 points but his title bid unravelled.
