Jolyon Palmer did not make his life easy today at Marina Bay: a slow start from pole position meant he had to fight his way back to the lead.
Thanks to a string of fastest laps, the Carlin driver reduced an over 25s gap after the mandatory pitstop to teammate and then race leader Felipe Nasr.
Palmer eventually crossed the finish line 12 seconds ahead of Nasr. James Calado finished third.
