Rosberg pulls ahead

VCTORY: Nico Rosberg

Nico won eight points ahead of teammate Hamilton.

Nico Rosberg led from pole to flag to win the Singapore Grand Prix yesterday and celebrate his 200th Formula One race by retaking the championship lead from Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.

After a chaotic start that brought out a safety car on the opening lap, Rosberg stayed clear of a late charging Daniel Ricciardo in a Red Bull at the Marina Bay Street Circuit as Hamilton completed the podium in third place.

The result lifts Rosberg on to 273 points with six rounds remaining, eight clear of Hamilton with Ricciardo a distant third in the title race.
