Lewis Hamilton eased to victory at the Singapore Grand Prix today after looking after his tyres during a “straightforward” race.
The McLaren driver, who controlled the race from the start, said: “Generally the race was pretty straight forward. I was never really under any great pressure and I was looking after the tyres.”
The 24-year-old Briton said that the victory was very important to him as he wanted to redeem himself after crashing in Monza two weeks ago.
Hamilton said: “I wanted to have a good result and I think I did that.”
He added: “It was a very tough race – conditions made it very tough – but generally the race was pretty straightforward for me.
“I had a good start and I managed to build a big enough gap.
“I knew that I was running longer than the guys behind me, so I was never really under any pressure.”
Hamilton said: “I looked after my tyres and I think it paid dividends in the end.”
