Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton needed a miracle going into Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix and the Briton certainly got it on his way to an against-all-odds win at the Marina Bay street circuit.

The triple champion, starting fifth with three cars between him and pole-sitting title-rival Sebastian Vettel, had expected a tough evening of damage limitation.

Instead, the 32-year-old was granted rain that levelled the playing field, carnage at the start that took out Ferrari’s Vettel and a big break in the championship fight.

“God blessed me today, for sure,” Hamilton, who went into the race three points ahead of Vettel but came away with a 28-point cushion, said on the podium.

“As soon as it rained I knew where I was going to finish.”
