SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX
The race was the first to be held entirely at night.
Only three drivers, all world champions, have won at the Marina Bay circuit. Alonso (2008, 2010), Vettel (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015), Hamilton (2009, 2014).
The race has been won from pole position on six occasions. The lowest winning grid position was Alonso, who came from 15th place in a now-notorious 2008 race that saw his Brazilian team mate Nelson Piquet crash deliberately on team orders.
There has been at least one safety car intervention in every race in Singapore so far.
The race is the longest on the calendar in terms of time taken to complete, ranging from between one hour and 56 minutes to the time limit of two hours.
The winner in Singapore has been champion at the end of the season in four of the last five years.
Hamilton can become only the third driver to win 50 races this weekend.
Rosberg, a German but the son of Finland's 1982 world champion Keke, now has more victories than any of Finland's three world champions. Raikkonen and Mika Hakkinen both had 20, Keke Rosberg five.
Monza was also Rosberg's 50th career podium. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
