Something of a change in the pecking order in Saturday practice.

Alonso on top.
Ricciardo still beating Vettel, but in P2.
Rosberg on top of Hamilton, but Lewis supposedly had a lock-up on his hot lap.  :'(
Williams (with Massa on top of the duo) seem to have sorted something out overnight.

Qualifying next, this could get very exciting.

The night race is my fave of the year and hopefully it will be competitive. The perfect scenario for F1 fans would be Ricciardo 1st and Hamilton 2nd making the title race even more interesting and the more competitive ones in the past few years.

The radio ban rules are just plain stupid.

Here is the grid:
1.  Hamilton    Mercedes   1m 45.681s
2.  Rosberg       Mercedes   1m 45.688s
3.  Ricciardo    Red Bull   1m 45.854s
4.  Vettel        Red Bull   1m 45.902s
5.  Alonso        Ferrari    1m 45.907s
6.  Massa        Williams   1m 46.000s
7.  Raikkonen    Ferrari    1m 46.170s
8.  Bottas        Williams   1m 46.187s
9.  Magnussen    McLaren   1m 46.250s
10. Kvyat        Toro Rosso   1m 47.362s
11. Button        McLaren   1m 46.943s
12. Vergne        Toro Rosso   1m 46.989s
13. Hulkenberg    Force India   1m 47.308s
14. Gutierrez    Sauber    1m 47.333s
15. Perez        Force India   1m 47.575s
16. Grosjean    Lotus    1m 47.812s
17. Sutil       Sauber    1m 48.324s
18. Maldonado    Lotus    1m 49.063s
19. Bianchi        Marussia   1m 49.440s
20. Kobayashi    Caterham   1m 50.405s
21. Chilton        Marussia   1m 50.473s
22. Ericsson    Caterham   1m 52.287s

It is obvious that Hamilton's surprise about the competitiveness of Red-Bull, Ferrari and Williams.  Williams in particular who were looking Friday night like they could take the car and go home, thus saving the wear and tear.

Lewis also was seen locking up the left front at turn one on his lap that just nudged Nico off the pole.  I guess it could have been more than .007.

Good to see Ricciardo beating Vettel again - Massa ahead of Bottas again - Mags ahead of Button . . .

I just looked at the times in all three sessions of qualifying and if one compares times of all cars in all three, the top 15 cars are capable of times within one second of Hamilton's pole time.

Hero's and zero's

Hamilton-perfect race...when the sc figured to make it
              close at the end Lewis pulled away

Vettel-about as good as he's been this year

Danny R-even finishing behind Vettel can't wipe that
              smile off his face.
               
Alonso-is the car getting better or is it Ferd?

safety crew-cleaning up debris with Pastor circling the track

Zero's

Mercedes-for what happened to Nico.hope this isn't
               a pattern

Kimi-I really expected a better race out of the iceman

Singapore track-doesn't  really give us a good race does it.
                        Monaco without the class

Eddie-Please make this is last time on the podium show-please


Should have included Perez,Massa,and Button in my hero's

I can't agree that it was a great race in a fantastic location.

It is a hugely boring race on a boring street circuit with zero elevation change unlike Monaco or it's excitement. It is only a Bernie mandated night race so UK viewers can watch during the day.
It reminds me very much of Valencia and that was horrible and I was not sad to the ass end of that nag track.
Yes there are lots of pretty lights and fireworks at the end.. SO what?
 
Another huge waste of energy for no real reason in a time when energy consumption should be looked at as we continue to screw up the planet with the coal fired electrical plants that are ruining our air.  Great move Bernie.....oh wait......you'll be dead soon so you don't care.

And yes, I know this is harsh but maybe that's what is required so these idiots will make the changes that are required and coming whether you like it or not.

It was a snoozer, as usual, at this circuit.  At least the cars look nice in the lighting.   :lazy:

Great job by Hamilton.  Rosberg (wiring loom problem) may have made things more interesting had he not suffered a car failure.
Vettel looks closer to old self, but Daniel was there to pounce if he made a mistake.
Alonso drove the wheels off of the Ferrari, again.
Massa also looking stronger again.

Five retirements says something when none were due to an accident.

Sounds like I picked a good race to miss.

I do like seeing the cars under the lights though.

if you could edit your own highlights show you would include the build-up to the start, the start, the restart after the safety car and the last 15 laps and you would have something fairly interesting to watch!
Agree with most of the comments here. Felt really sorry for Jenson. He drove a great race and I believed him when he said they still had something left for the end. What is happening to McLaren? They had one car die and the other one was frying its driver!

Apart from Jean Eric Vergne's charge through the field this was really dull.  At least there was a bit of action at the end though.  Nobody even hit the wall this year to make things interesting.  What a snorefest :(.

About the only other newsworthy thing to come out of the race, aside from McLaren still not being to overtake Force India in the constructors' championship, was Ericsson beating both Marussias!  Bianchi was hampered by overheating brakes though.
