Hamilton slaps his Mercedes as he comes into parc ferme and pumps his firsts at his engineers. Vettel looks very relieved with second and tells Red Bull he had nothing left in those tyres. Ricciardo is also smiling, but when isn't he?

Hamilton takes a three-point championship lead - who would have thought that was possible after the second lap in Belgium? This season is full of drama and I don't think it's quite going to stop here.

As always, thanks for joining us for coverage of this race. Please be sure to come back again in two weeks time for the Japanese Grand Prix from Suzuka.

Lap 61

Vergne scampering away from Bottas in sixth, knowing he's got to take a penalty. Hulkenberg struggling hugely and Perez eases past at Turn 18.

Vergne already 3.5s ahead of Bottas - if he can continue this pace he might just hold on to sixth.

Perez has DRS advantage but Raikkonen holds firm in eighth.

But out in front, Lewis Hamilton crosses the line to win the Singapore Grand Prix to claim the championship lead. He weaves across the finishing line, what a drive.

Behind him, Vettel clings on for second, Ricciardo rounds off the podium.

Bottas has completely lost his tyres! He runs wide and Perez, Raikkonen and Hulkenberg all go through. Bottas is actually skating around, meaning his rubber has completely gone from that tyre.

Vergne finishes sixth and will keep the position despite that penalty! Exciting finish outside the top five there, wonderful job from Vergne - a man looking for a seat next year.

Perez got ahead of Raikkonen before Bottas ran wide, too, so finishes seventh. Perez is really a man in form. Hulkenberg appears to have gone off the boil a little bit. Magnussen rounds off the top ten.

Lap 60

Vergne dives past Raikkonen into Turn 1 and then swings past Bottas! Superb driving from the Frenchman there, where did that come from!

Into the final two minutes now... Hamilton begins what will be his final lap of the race.

Lap 59

Three laps remaining is still the official count down but there's just over three minutes left too. Vergne passes Hulkenberg superbly for eighth, knowing he has that post-race penalty to come.

Lap 58

Four minutes until we hit the two-hour limit and four laps left, so we will finish this on a timer rather than when completed the allocated laps. It's now or never for Ricciardo and Alonso.

Vettel has a big lock up on the approach to Turn 11. I don't think any of these three have anything left in their tyres, but Ricciardo is edging closer and closer and it looks like Alonso is going to miss out.

Lap 57

Bottas has a train of cars behind him. Remember, his last pit stop was lap 23 - so if he can hold sixth that will be an absolutely phenomenal result.

A bit of a train forming behind Vettel as Ricciardo closes up on his team-mate, with Alonso lingering. Do any of these guys have the tyres to pass the man in front though?

Vergne gets a five-second penalty, which will drop him back to tenth if the gaps stay the same. Perez has got ahead of Maldonado for 11th.

Ferrari has to be wondering if it made the right call after the safety car. I'll be fascinated to know what he thinks after this race.
