The feature would be run by both cars at the following Japanese Grand Prix. The modifications ran from turn 11 to turn 13; drivers still turned right at turn 11 but it now kinked left slightly on entry, with the track shifting to the left-hand side of Fullerton Road.
This changed the profile of turn 12, as drivers now used the other side of the Anderson Bridge, while the hairpin at turn 13 has been widened by a metre in order to increase overtaking opportunities.
With forest fires continuing to burn in neighboring Indonesia , heavy smog was a concern for the event. Unhealthy levels forced the cancellation of other events in Singapore in the week leading up to the Grand Prix.
Race organisers, however, did not speculate whether the Grand Prix was also under threat of cancellation. Another 21 points behind in third was Sebastian Vettel , driving for Ferrari.
Per the regulations for the season, three practice sessions were held; there were two minute sessions on Friday and another one-hour session before qualifying on Saturday.
This meant that the gap between the first two practice sessions was half an hour shorter than in other races. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton was second, 0.
While Ricciardo felt he could go even faster, his teammate Daniil Kvyat was able to put in only eight laps due to a fuel system problem, and he finished the session eighteenth, just ahead of the two Manor Marussia drivers.
Early on in practice two, Will Stevens became the second Manor driver to make contact with the barriers, damaging his car.
Teammate Rossi was limited to only three laps of running as his team spent most of the session repairing the damage from the shunt in first practice, he eventually finished almost 14 seconds down on Daniil Kvyat, who topped the session with a time of 1: Fernando Alonso finished eighth for McLaren , also within a second of Kvyat.
In the third practice session on Saturday evening, the two Ferraris were in front, with Vettel fastest at 1: The two Red Bull cars of Kvyat and Ricciardo were behind, followed by both Mercedes cars, who trailed Vettel by more than a second.
Lewis Hamilton had several problems during the session; an early run was interrupted by him leaving the track and he was later called to drive through the pit lane to cool down his overheating car.
The two Manor Marussia cars were again last, with Rossi almost three seconds ahead of Stevens. Qualifying consisted of three parts, 18, 15 and 12 minutes in length respectively, with five drivers eliminated from competing after each of the first two sessions.
Daniil Kvyat topped the session with a time of 1: Pastor Maldonado was eliminated, as were the two Manor Marussia drivers, who were even further off the pace than usual.
Both Sauber drivers also did not make it into Q2, when Jenson Button was the last to set a fast lap, edging out Felipe Nasr by less than a tenth of a second.
Vettel set the fastest time in the second part of qualifying as well, being two-tenths faster than second placed Daniil Kvyat. While Max Verstappen made it into Q3, his teammate Sainz hit the wall in turn 19 close to the end of the session, damaging his suspension and front wing, with parts of debris left on the track.
At the beginning of Q3, Lewis Hamilton aborted his first fast lap. Mercedes seemed to struggle most in the final sector, where Hamilton lost half a second to the Red Bull of Kvyat.
Hamilton later stated that the team had problems generating heat in the tyres,  essential for the final sector that benefitted high traction.
Before the formation lap, Rosberg appeared to have an issue with his car, when he stopped at the end of pit lane on the way to the start grid.
However, his mechanics were able to rectify the problem, described by Niki Lauda as "a glitch", and he made it to the grid.
Fernando Alonso, who had enjoyed a decent start to move up into eleventh, came under pressure from Sainz by lap four, followed by Grosjean, who lost places at the start because he had to move around the stationary Verstappen.
A lap later, Grosjean became the first driver to pit. More cars came in on lap eleven, leading to heavy traffic that prevented Sainz and Alonso from leaving their pit boxes, costing time.
Alonso emerged from pit lane ahead of Grosjean, who moved past him into thirteenth. Felipe Massa had a slow stop of 4. Since Kvyat had made a pit stop shortly before the safety car was deployed, both Mercedes cars were able to move in front of him, leaving Kvyat in sixth place.
By lap 16, the virtual was replaced by the actual safety car, which stayed out until the end of lap At the restart, Sainz was caught out by his car being stuck in neutral, losing many places and dropping back to 18th position, but managed to continue.
The safety car had meanwhile allowed his teammate Verstappen to move closer to the pack, being about half a lap down on lap On lap 26, Hamilton reported a loss of power to his crew.
He subsequently lost positions rapidly, dropping back to ninth by lap 28, eventually retiring on lap Meanwhile, Felipe Massa had problems with his car as well.
Similar to Sainz, he saw his car switch to neutral. After driving through pit lane without stopping on lap 30, he retired a lap later, with Fernando Alonso also ending his race on lap 34 with a defective gearbox.
A second safety car period was caused on lap 37 by a man walking on the track. Several drivers again used the safety car to pit for new tyres, including Jenson Button, who emerged in tenth place.
By lap 40, Alexander Rossi was instructed to unlap himself behind the safety car, but when he failed to do so in an acceptable time, the race was resumed on lap 41, with Rossi stuck between the front runners.
One lap later, he took eighth place from Grosjean. His teammate Sainz followed two laps later, with Grosjean complaining that Sainz had left him "nowhere to go".
Meanwhile, at the front, Ricciardo set a fastest lap on lap 51, being 2. Lap 53 saw Jenson Button become the second McLaren to retire, suffering from a gearbox issue as well.
During the closing stages of the race, Valtteri Bottas in fifth experienced gearbox problems of his own, but was able to continue. On lap 60, Grosjean ran wide and let Felipe Nasr move through into the final point scoring position, tenth.
During the last lap, Toro Rosso instructed Verstappen to let his teammate Sainz pass him for eighth, but Verstappen refused and stayed in place.
Sebastian Vettel crossed the line to win the race, which took the entire allowed span of two hours. At the podium interviews, conducted by former team owner Eddie Jordan , Sebastian Vettel described the race as one of his best ever, calling it "a great day; we had a really great weekend".
He also revealed that his drink bottle had failed halfway into the race, causing him to become thirsty as drivers lose two to three litres in sweat during the Singapore race.
