"What a f-cking beautiful race!"
That's what we shouted to the high heavens minutes after the end of last Sunday's 2012 Singapore Grand Prix.
Was it really necessary to curse?
Well, consider this: The countdown to the end of the 2012 Singapore GP came to involve minutes rather than laps, since two safety car periods meant that the race reached the two-hour limit set for each grand prix. Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull was first to cross the finish line at the end of 59 rounds of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, a couple of laps short of the total distance set for the event. Still, the race hardly suffered from a lack of on-track action as a result of this.
Convinced? If not, here are the top quotes and pictures from that evening’s proceedings (in which you'll get a picture of how awesome a race it really was, and more reasons why you should get into F1 now!). Hit the gallery below!
