There is some good news for Sebastian Vettel in the wake of his Singapore DNF with reports claiming his engine escaped unscathed in his crashes.

Vettel’s night at the Marina Bay circuit came to an early conclusion when he was involved in a first corner collision with Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen.

Although the Ferrari driver left the scene of the accident, he spun into the wall moments later in his already damaged SF70H.

It was a disappointing result for the German who now trails Lewis Hamilton by 28 points in the title race.

There is, however, one piece of good news: his engine survived.

While his car was damaged, the power unit – his third of the season – came through unscathed according to Autosport.

This means Vettel will be able to use it in Malaysia, or later in the season, thereby avoiding moving onto his fourth and final power unit for the campaign.
