The crash gave victor Lewis Hamilton a 28-point lead in the title race.

Accelerating through the opening straight, Vettel was involved in a three-way collision with team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Lewis Hamilton believed he could claim an unlikely Singapore Grand Prix victory as soon as rain started to fall in the build-up to the race.

"I think there's a couple of us that particularly love those conditions more than maybe others".

Some drivers had expressed concerns about visibility in the wet under floodlights, but the night race had hardly started when it lost three of the first four cars on the grid.

With this win, Hamilton has established a commanding lead of 28 points over Ferrari's Vettel.

"For sure, it's bitter but it's done", said the four times Singapore GP victor, whose retirement ended a run of 18 successive points finishes.

"At the same time, vehicle 5, which had a slower start, moved to the left hand side of the track; auto 33 and auto 7 then collided resulting in a chain collision with auto 5 and, ultimately, auto 14 (Fernando Alonso) at the next turn".

Triple Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton says he is trying to go vegan out of concern for the planet, love of animals and his own health.

"Today I'll accept a little bit of defeat but there's still a lot to play for tomorrow", Ricciardo said.

"I think mainly Sebastian started squeezing me", he said. I tried to back out of it because I could see it coming but the rear tyres are wider than the front so I couldn't back out of it. Suspension damage.

Spaniard Carlos Sainz, who will move to Renault next season, finished fourth for Toro Rosso to score the best result of his career. The remaining points places went to Force India's Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon in fifth and tenth respectively, Williams' Lance Stroll in eighth and Haas's Romain Grosjean in ninth. However, race control decided against taking the option of starting the race under the Safety Car.
