Singapore GP: race preview

Last weekend showed us even in the Verstappen era we can have a compelling fight for first place – for about 15 laps, at least. Sainz, after an impressive pole position start, kept the Dutchman at bay for longer than anyone thought he would – and secured a well-deserved spot on the podium and the honor of Driver of the Day.

Ferrari's #1 driver, Leclerc, was just tenths off his teammate by the chequered flag, followed by Russel and Hamilton's Mercedes machines. Williams' Alex Albon also gave an impressive showing. 

The Singapore Grand Prix will be the first race this season since the FIA's technical directive that outlaws flexible wings. Last season's directive only assisted Red Bull in pulling away from the pack, so we'll have to wait and see whether this is a blessing or a curse for Horner's lot.

It's worth noting that the low-speed Singapore has historically been difficult for Red Bull, and Ferrari, McLaren, and Mercedes will see this trip to the Marina Bay Circuit as just about the only glimmer of hope they may have of breaking RB's unbeaten winning streak this season.

What's more, the absolute scenes we saw in Qualifying will only have fuelled that fire. Sainz locked in a second consecutive pole position, joined on the front row by George Russell, while both Red Bulls failed to make it through to Q3. 

Verstappen and Perez, in 11th and 13th places respectively, had serious traction issues around the slow Marina Bay street circuit, and have admitted that it's expected that neither driver will make it to the podium today. We've seen stranger things happen, though, so don't write them off yet.

A win for any other driver will be momentous this season, so don't miss a second of this historic race – and if we don't see any big names wipe out, it's very possible that yesterday's Qualifying defines today's finish order.
