Formula 1 arrives at the Marina Bay street circuit in the night test of the Singapore GP, to which teams like Red Bull arrive with great force. Who will lead into the weekend? We will know soon…
Formula 1 returns this weekend with the Singapore GP, a night test in which Max Verstappen will try to extend his winning streak, while others will try to increase the improvements already seen in Italy. Don’t you want to miss anything? This is everything you need to know about this test.
At this point in the season, to say that Red Bull has the advantage over the other teams is an understatement, but there is nothing certain about this race. After all, Ferrari showed a great performance at Monza, especially in qualifying. Additionally, other details must be taken into account.
For example, Verstappen has never won on this track, although that could change soon. In addition, the layout of the circuit has changed and there are four fewer corners, leaving a total of 19 for this 4.94 km track. That is the distance that the drivers will have to travel during 62 laps on this occasion.
Thus, this competition will once again return to the Marina Bay street circuit, in a night race in which no rain is expected. Even so, there will be high temperatures and humidity, and occasional storms may occur at certain points of the weekend. Be that as it may, a dramatic atmosphere is not expected in the different sessions of this Grand Prix.
And how will these sessions be distributed? The schedules of the Formula 1 Singapore GP will not vary too much from the hours we are used to, with Free Practice 1 that will be held this Friday the 15th at 11:30. Later, at 3:00 p.m., Free Practice 2 will take place.
Likewise, on Saturday the 16th, Free Practice 3 will take place at 11:30, with qualifying scheduled for 3:00 p.m. Of course, we must not forget that the race will be held on Sunday the 17th at 2:00 p.m., one hour earlier than usual for the other events on the calendar.
With this, the F1 Singapore GP is about to begin and it may be the scenario in which Verstappen increases his winning streak to 11, although there may be surprises and various teams will arrive with improvements. As usual in this sport, nothing has been decided.
