Frances Fry - "What an eventful race weekend! Not just on the track either. The race in the night wasn't without its excitement and tests of skill for the drivers, but one of the most talked about occurrences happened off the track. This was the retirement of Mexican driver, Esteban Gutierrez. Gutierrez has had a very difficult season with his team, Sauber, struggling with reliability issues. On several occasions the 23-year-old has said how difficult he has been finding the season. However, this race, it really showed. Gutierrez faced some electrical faults in the first half of the Grand Prix and was forced to retire. After pulling into the pit lane and parking his car up in the Sauber garage, Gutierrez took his gloves off and threw them onto a work surface with quite a force, before walking himself to the corner of the garage to compose himself.
It was a sad sight to see. If anything, it shows how passionate these drivers are about their sport. At the end of the day, they love this sport as much as me and you, and I think that's great to know!
Additionally, these two Mercedes drivers seem to have switched luck with Hamilton taking the win, and Rosberg having to start from the pit lane after being left on the grid on the formation lap. The bad luck seemed to continue as Rosberg had to retire after not being able to select gears, even after a reboot of the car. So, Hamilton seemed to be off to a good start and things were only going to get better. Now the Brit leads the championship by 3 points and I simply cannot wait to see how long he can keep the lead. I guess we'll have to wait and see!"
Amy Hawk - "What a race. It was everything fans wanted. Lots of wheel-to-wheel racing and what better than under the stars? Singapore is always pleasing. I quite enjoy street circuits which is why Marina Bay and Monte Carlo are my favourites. Force India really had a great run. I was certainly nervous during the last few laps when Checo (Perez) was overtaking all those cars. Sauber, unfortunately had another double retirement, but.. Things happen and looking forward is important. So next up is Japan at Suzuka. I can't wait. Our congrats to Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, and Daniel Ricciardo!"
