No pole but Red Bull confident of Singapore win

DB11 car is seen during the 87th International Motor Show at Palexpo in Geneva Switzerland

Red Bull's Max Verstappen blamed Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel for the first-lap crash which took three cars out of the Singapore Grand Prix.

The stewards investigated the incident but chose to take no further action, ruling that: "No driver was wholly or predominantly to blame".

As the rain relented, Hamilton quickly assumed control of the grand prix to take the checkered flag ahead of Daniel Ricciardo with Valtteri Bottas in third.

Verstappen - who qualified second on the grid - made a good start but so did Raikkonen from third and he was soon alongside the 19-year-old's auto.

Daniil Kvyat put his Toro Rosso into the Turn 7 wall amid tricky conditions on Lap 11, and Marcus Ericsson crashed his Sauber on the Anderson Bridge on Lap 38.

Vettel was on pole position, with Hamilton fifth, and everything looked set for the German to retake the overall lead he had surrendered only two weeks earlier at Monza in Italy. The collision left Vettel's vehicle with a hole punched in the side and he spun into the wall at turn three.

"Now we are good here and with the rain - I think the podium was guaranteed or maybe we would be even fighting for victory - everything happened".

Meanwhile, four soldiers were hurt when an improvised explosive device that terrorists had abandoned at Bato mosque exploded. Año urged the remaining Maute gunmen, as well as former hostages turned fighters, to surrender "while they still have time".

Polesitter Vettel moved across from the outside in an attempt to cover-off the fast-starting Verstappen, who ended up being squeezed between the Ferrari pair as Raikkonen surged up the inside.

"God blessed me today for sure", said Hamilton, who set a lap record on his way to a third win in a row.

Alonso lasted just a few laps before the damage sustained at the first corner forced him to retire, and Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat became the fifth man out when he ploughed nose-first into a barrier - prompting a second safety auto.

"But I am at the race so I have chefs here".

"It was going to be one place maybe or hope for reliability for another vehicle but for the rain to fall, I was so happy, you can't imagine how happy I was".

"I don't know [what happened], I didn't see that much". I hoped I would get to race Sebastian at the beginning. I saw Max and then I saw Kimi hitting the side of me.
