When it first appeared on the calendar in 2008, there was a whole host of questions that needed asking about the Singapore Grand Prix. How would drivers and teams adapt to the time difference while tackling a night race? What about the risk of equatorial storms? Would the artificial light be bright enough? But ten races on, we know that those are not the questions that need answering at Marina Bay.
One way or another, Scuderia Ferrari has played a key role on this circuit in the tiny Asian republic. From Felipe Massa’s dreams of victory evaporating in its first year, to Alonso’s victorious resistance against Vettel in 2010, to the very same Sebastian’s win in Scuderia colours three years ago and his great fight through the field after qualifying problems in 2016. In Singapore, nothing can be taken for granted and there is no clear favourite until the chequered flag falls.
Follow us for the latest updates and results from the Marina Bay Street Circuit, as the first practice session for the 2018 Singapore Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to evaluate the ideal set-up ahead of the qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
