Lewis Hamilton won the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix, a race marked by multiple Safety Car periods, the first coming after Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen, and Kimi Raikkonen came together on the start. None of the top three starters would finish. Rain fell before the race and continued through the early stages, though conditions remained dry enough for inters to be the tire of choice though the middle stages before the switch to dries.
Daniel Ricciardo finished second, where he spent much of the sometimes chaotic race. Valtteri Bottas made for a double Mercedes podium, with Carlos Sainz and Sergio Perez completing the top five of the time-shortened race. Crashes hit the early portion of the race hard, with attrition in the heat and humidity pulling drivers from the lineup neared the end. Only twelve drivers finished the race.
