With seven races remaining in the Formula One schedule, things are heating up at the top of the standings. Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel only trails his main title rival Lewis Hamilton by three points heading into Singapore, as the driver are ready for a difficult race on the Marina Bay Street Circuit.
The anticipated temperatures in Singapore could reach 86 degrees Fahrenheit with 86% of humidity at the time of the race, which means that not only will the temperatures be warm, the battle for the drivers championship between Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton is as close as it could get. Separated by only three points, if either Sebastian or Hamilton have a slip up, it could prove to be costly.
The driver with the best chance of upsetting the Vettel-Hamilton party is Kimi Raikkonen. The focus is weighed heavily on the drivers championship, making this weekend prime time for a Kimi win. The Finnish driver finished ahead of his teammate in 2016 and could do so this weekend as well. However, the duo of Seabstian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton combined have won six of the nine races that have taken place in Singapore.
