The Singapore Grand Prix finally started and the fans were excitedly watching the action unfold. However, sadly for Zhou Guanyu, his first Singapore Grand Prix was short-lived as he crashed with Nicholas Latifi in the 7th lap causing him to retire from the race.
Fans were dismayed at this prospect and showed their discontent at Latifi for causing the crash and retiring the rookie from his debut race in Singapore.
Guanyu is currently 17th in the driver standings with a total of 6 points, but him retiring early in the Singapore Grand Prix could hurt his standings if Lance Stroll and Alex Albon are able to score points this race, it would threaten Guanyu’s position in the driver standings.
