Yesterday’s Singapore Grand Prix was a striking example of 3 rules put in practice which we have described in earlier posts. The race was supposed to last for 61 laps but due to two safety car entrances the maximum 2 hours race limit was applied. The winner Sebastien Vettel crossed the finish line at lap 59.
Also due to safety car deployment, slower cars that were already overlapped were allowed to put themselves back to the leader lap again, For that, they passed the safety car. Those were, for instance, the cases of Charles Pic and Timo Glock that ended up the race on the same lap of Vettel’s.
Finally, another situation to which we have refered in yesterday’s post occurred during the race. Roman Grosjean was in front of his teammate Kimi Raikkonen, but since Kimi is in better position to reach the championship title, Lotus-Renault Team ordered Romain Grosjean to let Raikkonen pass him with the argument that he was faster.
