Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton are the only two drivers with pole experience in Singapore. Hamilton, has won the last two races in Singapore. Currently, the Brit driver holds a 63-points lead over teammate Valtteri Bottas.ย 

Red Bullโ€™s strengths are again expected to shine through, though it remains unclear whether Ferrari has closed the gap despite Charles Leclercโ€™s wins in Belgium and Italy.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff believes his team is still the one to beat this weekend in Singapore.

โ€œFor a long time, Singapore used to be one of our weakest tracks, but weโ€™ve made some inroads into that and performed well last year,โ€ Wolff said.

โ€œHowever, there are no home runs at a track like Singapore โ€ฆ we take absolutely nothing for granted in our approach to the weekend.

โ€œWe are looking forward to a tough battle.โ€

Singapore Grand Prix Betting Oddsย 

A repeat of Lewis Hamiltonโ€™s โ€˜magic lapโ€™ from last year seems probable.ย 

Max Verstappen has been on the front row at Marina Bay for the past two years. If Hondaโ€™s Spec 4 engine can give him the power to challenge the Mercedes in his RB15, weโ€™d predict a Q3 shoot-out between Verstappen and Hamilton.ย
