Daniel Ricciardo may have finished the Singapore Grand Prix out of the points positions in 14th, but after starting at the back of the grid due to a penalty, he tore up the track from the line, saying to his engineers: "We're not f*cking around tonight!"
As the lights went out, the Australian attempted to fight back from his 20th place after he took a penalty after qualifying as a result of his car having been found to have delivered more than the 120kW limit of MGU-K power during a lap in Q1.
It was a valiant effort to make up six places, but the Renault man eventually saw his pace drop off, meaning he failed to claim a point.
