Sainz breaks Verstappen's streak 

The Spaniard crowned the Singapore Grand Prix without setbacks

Red Bull disappeared from the map this Sunday and F1 had the most vibrant race this season. Carlos Sainz Jr. crowned the Singapore Grand Prix after a masterful demonstration with his Ferrari.

The Spaniard stopped Max Verstappen's historic winning streak of 10 consecutive wins.

Sainz started on pole and the Spaniard managed to resist the wear of his tires to score the second victory of his career. He was escorted by two Britons: McLaren's Landon Norris and Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

George Russell crashed the other Mercedes on the final lap, missing out on a podium finish.

“I felt under control. At all times I felt that I had the ability to achieve the goal. That was the most beautiful feeling,” said Sainz, who took his foot off the accelerator to help Norris.

“Carlos was very generous… He helped me with my career and it also helped him. We knew how to contain them (Mercedes), we did everything necessary and then some,” said Norris, who has been second in three of his last six races.

Charles Leclerc was fourth after failing to keep up with the momentum of the Mercedes with worn tires, just ahead of Verstappen, who started from 11th and briefly moved into second behind Sainz.

Despite the bad day, after 15 races, Verstappen leads the general classification with 374 points, well above the 223 of “Checo” Pérez. Hamilton is third with 189.
