SINGAPORE (AP) For Nico Rosberg, early retirement from the Singapore Grand Prix was painful. Seeing his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton win the race and snatch back the championship lead was agonizing.
Hamilton won his seventh race of the season Sunday to move to 241 points, ahead of Rosberg on 238 with five races left. The advantage is thin but the Briton carries all the momentum after back-to-back victories and Rosberg's hopes of his first F1 title are diminishing.
Hamilton started from pole position and led comfortably for much of the race but was forced into a late pit-stop, briefly giving up the race lead to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, before he passed the German seven laps from the finish to win by 13.5 seconds at the Marina Bay circuit.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Lionel Messi shrugged off a missed penalty and another injury to Neymar by scoring one goal and setting up two more to lead Barcelona to a 5-0 rout at 10-man Levante on Sunday as it stayed top of the Spanish league.
Messi set up Neymar for the 34th-minute opener before flubbing a spot kick in the 42nd after being fouled by Loukas Vyntra, who was sent off. (MORE)

PARIS (AP) Edinson Cavani continued his return to form while Zlatan Ibrahimovic's mini-slump extended to a third game without scoring as defending champion Paris Saint-Germain disappointed again, conceding a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw at home to Lyon on Sunday to slip three points off the lead.

NEWPORT, Wales (AP) Joost Luiten overcame a shaky start to shoot a level-par 71 and hang on for a one-shot victory at the Wales Open on Sunday.
