The grid has been decided for the very first Singapore Grand Prix, and Felipe Massa is on the top spot, followed by Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Robert Kubica. BMW team mate Nick Heidfeld has received a three-grid place penalty following an altercation with Rubens Barrichello, where the Honda driver was impeded and then struggled to abort the lap and enter the pitlane. Formula One’s first night race is looking to be a great race.

Thanks Ago. As Fisichella was at the back anyway, I didn’t bother updating the grid.
