Martin Brundle was keeping a close eye on Lewis Hamilton’s battle with Carlos Sainz and noticed how frustrated the Brit was getting behind the Ferrari driver during a Virtual Safety Car period. Hamilton came into the Singapore Grand Prix hoping he had a chance of winning his first race of the season after a close qualifying session on Saturday.

But he was caught out by Sainz off the start on Sunday, being pushed wide into Turn 1 and dropping back to fourth.

Hamilton had initially complained in the early stages of the race that his team made the wrong call on the tyres.

A number of incidents saw Hamilton close up to Sainz on several occasions, but the Singapore Grand Prix is notoriously tough to overtake on and that was proving the case for the Brit in the race.
