SINGAPORE, Oct 2, 2022 (AFP): Sergio Perez won a rain-affected Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday meaning his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, who finished seventh, must wait at least another week to retain his Formula One world championship.

Perez took the chequered flag 7.5sec ahead of the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc, whose teammate Carlos Sainz was third in the night race that started more than an hour late because of a storm.

Verstappen had needed to win to secure the title with five rounds to spare but finished seventh in a rain-delayed night race with only 14 finishers.- AFP
