Nico Rosberg took the Singapore Grand Prix to move ahead of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the World Championship standings.
The German started strongly and he held off late pushes from Daniel Ricciardo and the Briton to secure his eighth win of the season and take an eight-point lead in the standings.
Rosberg went into the weekend just two points behind Hamilton, knowing that he had the power to take control of the drivers’ championship.
With Sebastian Vettel down in fifth it was another good weekend for Ricciardo, who further cements his grip on third place in the standings.
Hamilton finshed in third, Dani Kvyat in fourth while young Danish driver Kevin Magnussen managed to finish in the top ten.
This marks Rosberg’s 22nd win of his career with the chance to cement the championship with six races to go.
