New front wing and other upgrades working well while Ferrari's didn't this weekend helped put them over the top here as well I'd imagine.
In Singapore it was more down to Ferrari not getting properly dialed in for Q3 and neither Raikkonen nor Vettel having a solid lap (combined with Hamilton putting in a blistering lap). Here, it seems to be that Mercedes have truly leaped ahead. Hamilton was on an even faster one when he messed up his second flier in Q3. I think the upgrade is substantial indeed.
