Sebastian Vettel hailed a 'perfect' weekend for Ferrari after he was able to dominate in Singapore to chalk up his third win of the campaign.

Vettel converted pole position into victory, while team-mate Kimi Raikkonen completed the podium in third place, the pair split by Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo.

"Obviously we had a bit of a breather with the Safety Car but still lots of pressure from behind," he said.

"I think Daniel had a very good race looking after tyres very well which made it a bit tactical towards end of the stints, second stint I was dictating the pace, obviously around here it’s not so easy to overtake so I was using that.

"I was able to look after my tyres today, control the pace, so all in all a perfect weekend I’m very, very happy."

Vettel is sure that he can still provide Mercedes with a title threat across the remainder of 2015.

"Well if we have more weekends like this then yes [we can win the title] but all we have to do is look after ourselves, maximum attack, what they do is not in our hands, we have a small chance, maybe we can make the impossible possible."

Raikkonen said he was pleased to salvage third after struggling throughout the weekend.

"Today was a struggle again but we had enough speed to be in third place but I had no chance to do anything about the first two, I could follow them at the beginning but then my tyre dropped off," he said.

"It wasn’t nice to have that kind of difficulty but we still finished third, so when you have a bad few days and still finish third it’s pretty good and for the team is nice, hopefully we can repeat that."
