Until the final 15 laps, the Singapore Grand Prix was not a great race. But then, all of a sudden, things started happening and you had to watch all the way to the chequered flag to know the result. Wouldn't it be great if that were the norm as opposed to the exception?
I have to say I was a bit dumbfounded when we heard Nico Robserg's engineer telling him on lap eight that he needed to manage his brakes and it was a very serious issue. Then, to hear the same message to Lewis Hamilton on lap nine really confused me. Why does a team with the advantage they have push the limits so much?
The front brake ducts of an F1 car are critical to its overall aerodynamic performance. Every team looks for the most downforce possible, but on the way you cannot compromise everything else.
