2019 Singapore Grand Prix

The strategy call which decided the Singapore Grand Prix was undoubtedly Ferrari’s decision to bring Sebastian Vettel into the pits on lap 19.

He was the first of the leading drivers to pit, a move which usually confers a valuable performance advantage at Singapore. That was certainly the case on Sunday – Vettel’s first lap on a fresh set of tyres was over four seconds quicker than Leclerc was able to lap at the time.

This wasn’t unusually quick for the tyre compound he was on – Max Verstappen, who pitted for the same tyres at the same time, was just four tenths of a second slower. But it was crucial for Vettel as he had been just three-and-a-half seconds behind his team mate when he pitted from third.

Vettel was partly able to get ahead of his team mate because Leclerc had restricted the field to a very slow pace in the opening laps. “In the first few laps obviously we wanted to go as slow as we possibly could for the guys behind to not have the window to pit,” he confirmed afterwards.

Ferrari’s strategy left Mercedes with no option but to try to run Hamilton as long as possible and use fresher tyres to attack them later in the race. Unlike Ferrari, they ensured Hamilton was not ‘undercut’ by Bottas, by ordering Bottas to slow by more than three-and-a-half seconds. Ferrari did not do the same with Vettel when Leclerc pitted because, of course, they needed to ensure Hamilton would not come out of the pits ahead of them.

A Safety Car period helped Hamilton reduce his deficit to the leaders. Unfortunately for him, two further Safety Cars limited his opportunity to go on the attack. The Mercedes seemed to take longer to regain its pace after restarts.

With so much pace management going on in the race, it was little surprise that for the first time this year the fastest lap was set by a driver who did not finish in the top 10. Kevin Magnussen therefore did not score the bonus point after using a set of soft tyres to set a time more than a second quicker than anyone else.
