    No team is favorite heading into this race. Should be close between 3 teams.

    What updates Seb has planned for Ferrari, new floor, new diffuser maybe? We need them to work in order to keep Lewis at bay

    I cannot see anything else than Ferrari 1-2 in Singapore. Mercs has not been good here and RB has not pace. Even Max and RIC said that it won`t be like it was in Monaco.

    i think red bulls are bluffing.....i think they will be a force to be recconed with in Singapore.....this is NOT a power track, and engine power will not make that big a difference

    red bulls have the best car when it comes to downforce and this track will play good in their hands....of course you need good traction out of slow corners (and this track has LOTS of those) and that is where the Ferrari comes and shines really well.....so we'll see how we stack up against the red FOOLS.....

    and Mercedes....well you cannot underestimate them, as i'm sure they probably tried to figure out some of their issues...

    but all in all....I'M HOPING FOR A FERRARI 1-2 HERE.......and that will be up to Kimi if he still has modivation now that he's being sacked at the end of the year
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    When a contract ends at the end of a year and it is not renewed the person in your opinion is therefore sacked? So by the same logic Leclerc was sacked by Sauber? And Massa, Schumacher etc.?

    well, that was not exactly what i was trying to say....he probably feels that way by not having his contract renewed, as i'm sure he would have wanted to be at Ferrari another year

    so yeah, i retract my blunt wording i used to describe his last 7 races with us.

    Ahhhh can't wait, I'll be attending the Quali and Race, not long to go now :)

    Anyone else from here going to the race?
    Congratulations!

    If your tickets allow you to, go through the Walkabout areas. Though the view isn't as up close as it used to be, Turns 10-13 are awesome--the cars under the lights and the helmets bobbing about in the cockpit.

    Enjoy your experience and bring us luck!

    Maybe you want to look back at 2016 season where Red Bull was the best car in Monaco by a country mile but in Singapore, Mercedes was dominant, brutally crushed Red Bull by over half a second in qualifying. This time around, anyone could win here, it could be Ferrari, it could be Red Bull or it could be Mercedes.

    What Seb has planned is inside him with which he put on one of his best ever qualifying laps to be on pole last year with the second best car.

    Don't retract a word! Sacked is correct, Alonso whopped Shummy twice, get out! Massa couldn't match Stools old mans $$$ , get out! Rubens complained about the midget bum Todt on the radio, get out! Leclerc finished behind Stool, get out! Seb got wrecked by Kimi Monza, ops !! Wrong guy got kicked out!

    hopefully ferrari uses team orders from Q1 through the races, stupid to let kimi take away points from seb, rather make sure seb is ahead and kimi can be a buffer, redeem last years failure in singapore as a start. no more ruining each others races and work as a team. use kimi as a slipstream whenever possible in Q3 too

    MA apologised to Bottas for calling him Butler

    The only instruction he gave to Kimi and Seb was not to do anything stupid at the start of the race in Monza

    At this point, I wouldn't mind seeing Kimi take a couple of wins and secure the WCC Championship for Ferrari. Two-Chain-Rapper Douche Canoe is 30 points ahead with luck and the FIA on his side and there are only 7 races left.

    Seb will outperform Kimi in Singapore, he just seems to have that track nailed down, but a couple of wins for Kimi would be nice. Maybe Japan and Abu Dhabi.

    He was saying what everyone else is thinking, he should not have apologised.

    Yes but given the history of Ferrari, should not have said that

    i just cant stand ratboy, lol, i dont want him anywhere near the win... kimi usually lets ham go past him quite easily , but yeah if seb has an issue i hope kimi can back him up and win

    Out of the top 6 drivers, I noticed Bottas has the longest odds by far of making the podium, around 6.00.
    Not sure what that's about, perhaps the bookies are expecting him to sacrifice his race for Ham again.

    Maybe Merc expected to be 3rd best car in S’pore

    Yes, Singapore is a Seb track. Unfortunately the rain that is predicted might change that.

    Well, he did have a brain fart in Monza with no rain. Maybe rain will do him good
