2022 Singapore Grand Prix

Sergio Perez led from the start to win the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen suffered a series of mishaps behind him

It started late, finished late, and the result was confirmed late, but despite multiple penalties for the race winner, nothing actually changed.

The Singapore Grand Prix was a bizarre affair in many ways, after a torrential downpour for an hour before the race drenched the track, leading to a delay to the start procedure. Once the rain eased, the pit lane was opened, leading to an eventual start time just over an hour later than originally planned.

By then, track conditions were good enough for everyone to start on intermediate tyres, but there was a wide variety in the different launches across the grid. Pole-sitter Charles Leclerc got a good initial getaway, as did Lewis Hamilton directly behind him, but in the second phase the cars on the inside of the track – Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz – launched past each of them to run first and third respectively.
