F1Brits_90 Correction Vettel seemingly lost it in Singapore

I think that in part this was a consequence of the engine power deficit. Red Bull's pace advantage was set in mostly free air, allowing them to maximize their aero advantage. At the restarts, RIC was obviously in Hamilton's dirty air. At same time, HAM probably had his engine turned up to 11 at the restarts to pull out a lead.

He did well to hang onto P2 then.
vintly - Such an amendment would be ultra stupid considering the huge run off at turn one in Singapore.
It's an interesting view and if you do look at Hamilton's starts he does move across as well (maybe not as much as Vettel) so makes sense.
In all the big start line crashes I can remember there has always been a fast starting car coming down the far side of the track to where the pole man sits (perfectly fairly) that has caught people out.
As much as people like to have a bad guy for every incident I think this one sits squarely in the racing incident section.
I guess that doesn't make as good headlines as 'Vettel fears Verstappen' though.
Yeah, I remember that, though I can't recall the driver. I think it was Grosjean or Sato.
