Who won the last Singapore GP?

As mentioned ealrier the Singapore GP returns to the calendar following a two year hiatus. The 2019 edition of the race saw Sebastian Vettel, who was still with Ferrari at the time, claim what is likely to be his last win the sport.

The race was determined after the first round of pit stops when Vettel emerged ahead of his teammate Charles Leclerc, with Ferrari then cruising to a one-two finish. Behind them it was 2021 title protagonists Verstappen and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton who finished third and fourth.

Known for its demanding nature and hot temperatures, the Singapore Grand Prix is one of the toughest races to complete for both driver and car. The race often sees the drivers drop their pace with the 2019 edition witnessing cars go as much as 15 seconds slower than the pole time in order to preserve their tyres and prevent the engine from over heating.
