Sebastian Vettel delivered a great performance to lead from start to finish, with Ricciardo putting in a great drive to finish on the podium alongside the second Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen.

The Marina Bay Street Circuit saw some over taking in the middle of the pack with Verstappen providing great entertainment during his rise up the field. It was also one without a Mercedes being involved in a fight for the podium places. The Silver Arrows team remains baffled, and to add to the lack of pace Lewis Hamilton retired on lap 34.

It's Suzuka in a week's time. Mercedes will hope to have solved their issues, as Ferrari look to continue their good form.

Verstappen has ignored team orders to finish ahead of his teammate Sainz. He will have some explaining to do.

15:07

Sebastian Vettel has driven a flawless race to lead every lap and take the chequered flag. Ricciardo comes in second with Kimi maintaining his position in third.

15:05

61/61 - VETTEL WINS!!

15:05

61/61 - Vettel on the final lap

15:04

LAP 60/61 - Verstappen has been asked to swap places with his teammate behind. Sainz did him the same favour earlier in the race. He has now been ordered to do so.

15:02

LAP 60/61 - Vettel on his penultimate lap responds to Ricciardo's pace and goes half a second quicker.

15:02

LAP 59/61 - Ricciardo was just over four tenths quicker than Vettel in the previous lap, the Australian making one final push. And the race is going to go the distance, all 61 laps.

Nasr is through and it's a welcome point for the Sauber team, who have struggled in recent races. Grosjean locks up on turn 1 and hands him the place.

14:59

LAP 59/61 - Some great racing all across the grid, with Nasr now closing in on Grosjean, as they battle for the final championship point.

14:58

LAP 57/61 - The battle for seventh place between Perez, Verstappen and Sainz continues. It could end in glory or tears this!

14:57

LAP 56/61 - Red Bull is still hoping to catch Vettel at the end due to the the advantage they have with the negligible tyre degradation. But it remains to be seen if Vettel is now too far ahead to think of a move.

14:55

5 LAPS TO GO!!!

14:54

LAP 56/61 - Perez is still holding the two Toro Rosso's behind. Good drive from the Mexican again.

14:54

LAP 55/61 - But Rosberg is not making any progress in catching Kimi, the Finn looks safe for third place if his tyre problem holds up.

14:52

LAP 55/61 - Kimi is now five seconds behind Ricciardo, and Rosberg is now just six seconds behind the Finn. The German will want to make up as many points on Hamilton as possible following the Briton's retirement.

14:50

LAP 52/61 - Verstappen has caught up to Perez, this should be an entertaining battle.

Jenson has been called in to retire the car due to gearbox troubles. It's a shame as the Mclaren-Honda team were expecting to score points at this race. That's a double retirement yet again.

14:48

LAP 52/61 - Vettel sets yet another fastest lap of the race.

14:47

Under 10 laps to go! Ricciardo is 3 seconds behind Vettel. Race still on!!

14:46

LAP 50/61 - The race could end before the stipulated number of laps due to the extended safety car periods. the chequered flag will drop just past the two-hour mark.

Kimi is still having trouble with his tyres, as Ricciardo goes a fraction quicker than Vettel.

14:42

LAP 49/61 - Vettel is informed from the pit box 'we are the quickest out there' as Ricciardo steps up the pace.

14:40

LAP 47/61 - Next in the young Dutchman's sights is Perez, but the Mexican is around seen seconds ahead. Could be too much to do, despite him being on the quicker super soft tyres.

14:38

LAP 47/61 - Verstappen makes a brilliant move to pass Grosjean and his teammate follows through half a lap later.

14:38

LAP 46/61 - Verstappen is stuck behind Grosjean, unable to make the move.

Vettel is now 3.2 seconds ahead of Ricciardo as the Australian drops Kimi
