    i can only imagine what he would have done in 2018 if he was with us.....betcha ya anything he weould have pushed Hamilton all the way to the last race....maybe even win the WDC....

    Forza Ferrai, Forza Charles....
    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    i know the race is tomorrow and that ONLY tomorrow the points will be handed out, but boy oh boy have we got a kid in our team that surely will pressure hamilton for the rest of the season....

    i was totally surprised to say the least with how well the Ferrari has gone this weekend and GOOD THE UPGRADES HAVE WORKED......i wasn't so sure with how the weeekend progressed in free practice and all....i thought for sure Merc will have something up their sleeve as well as red bulls....

    but man, on a track like singapore where i wsa convinced we would quali p4 -p5 kind of thing, given teh fact how BAD we were in Monaco and Hungary which have the same characteristics as Singapore....to come out with POLE and P3....WOW, JUST WOW....and if it wasdn't for Seb's mistakes in the last attempt we could have had maybe 1-2....

    Forza Ferrari and wish all the best to both our drivers for tomorrow's race...

    My positives are that finally after so many years we have upgrades that upgrade. We have team that can improve the car. Maybe this year is lost, but we will come stronger.

    Fingers crossed Ferrari not making any stupid mistakes tomorrow. In Singapore we tend to make them - Felipe comes to mind, Kimi-Seb crash as well...

    Yeah WDC is a bit far away. But I am excited by our development. Seems our different approach is starting to work.

    Amazing laps by Charles. If only the car had been this good from melbourne, golden boy would not be sleepwalking into another undeserved title.

    Enjoy it Lewis.. It's your last one, Leclerc WDC 2020!!
    Seb. Good try, for heaven's sake NO spins tomorrow please.

    Not to take anything away from Lec great performance (yet another one), but I think Ferrari is also doing something right with the development here.
    6 months ago, Singapore track would be considered a nightmare for our car. And no driver can break the law of physics, if the car sucks, the result is going to be bad too.

    I'm convince the car has improved a lot. Merc will be glad Ferrari had a rough start to the season, or they wont be walking away with the title

    Several things are going in Ferrari's favour:
    their engine update appears to have given them a sharper performance edge, whilst maybe keeping fuel consumption either in check or reduced,
    their aero updates appear to be working as hoped,
    the higher temperatures of Singapore are keeping the tyres in the optimum tyre temperature window,
    Of course, it looks like has Charles gone up a step since the start of the season, much like he did after several rounds last year; he is now comfortable on the ragged edge, much like Lewis and Max - hallelujah!

    Binnoto said Ferrari has started to understand the car. But most of us took it for granted considering the past. But this really bodes well for next year.

    Hope for a good race. Not easy to overtake here.
    Start is imp & SC is always a high probability around here. Ferrari need to be ready for it.

    Ferrari engineers must have been busy during the 'summer break'.

    2 DNFs for Hamilton an it's on. Everyone has had a DNF, but him. It's long overdue...

    You can’t expect DNF on Ham’s car. It’s bullet proof. Lot of cars go through that DNF zone, except his car.
    Don’t know what’s the trick over there. Either it seems a perfect car or luck or any other things.

    You are right, but that is something we can not relly on. They have bullet proof car and even when he has DNF, we are not using that. Austria last year....

    Ferrari are building a fantastic platform for next year.Finishing this year as winners of the 2nd half of the season would be tops.How Ferrari will finish this year is how they will start next year.All is pointing in the right direction under Binnotto.

    The keys to Ferrari were a better understanding of the car, the new parts, the tire management and the drivers' confidence in their car. And somehow the track layout. How so? Because the curve radii are similar. The Marina Bay Street Circuit consists largely of 90 degree corners. On it one can adjust his car more easily, than on a succession of most different curves. The Hungaroring, for example, mixes angular curves with medium-fast and elongated passages.

    Simple reason:

    their car is generally so good, with good drivability, good traction, very good tyre handling and downforce and good consumption and he likes it a lot, so he does not have to push it as he has confidence that he can use the (lot) spare power when he needs i.
    Like it was shown in Hungary and in Silverstone where he did the fastest lap at the end of the race on used hard tyre.

    As simple as this.

    Yes, hopefully Charles takes his third win a row and Seb overtakes Hamilton and P2, that is all what I am hoping for today

    Race starts one hour early today. The rest of the races start at the same time as qualifying.

    Only Mika H and Damon H have come in F1 with 3 victory in a row.

    Charles could be member of a very elite group here if he wins today's race!

    You mean 3 wins in a row in second season?
