Nicole Scherzinger had actually intended to give the Singapore GP a miss, but on Sunday, she was seen entering the paddock hand in hand with Lewis Hamilton. Perhaps to make sure that Lewis wasn't distracted? After all, Mariah Carey had been booked to appear in a fringe event, and as is widely known, Hamilton has a crush on her.

Sebastian Vettel's debriefing session with his engineers lasted almost two and a half hours, and all the while, Sebastian's parents were waiting (more or less) patiently for their son to emerge. Papa Norbert was watching to see if they had finished but kept having to report back with a degree frustration: "The red light is still on."
