30 PM IST, Max Verstappen targets Maiden Pole

Red Bull had a rare off day in 2023 as they struggled for rear grip during FP2 at the Singapore GP. The Ferraris at the top once again, with good race pace as well.

The Singapore GP Qualifying will be very close like most Formula 1 qualifying sessions this year. However, unlike most sessions, Red Bull and Max Verstappen will find it pretty tough to be near the front. During the representative FP2 session, they struggled with a lack of rear grip and couldn’t put a decent lap together. The Ferrari drivers were on the money throughout the day, topping both practice sessions. Every driver kept it out of the wall throughout the day, a rarity on a track like Singapore.

Free Practice 1

Free Practice 1 had conditions which were very different to the conditions expected in Singapore GP Qualifying. The track was a lot hotter but it was a pretty clean session for the drivers. However, we did have a few yellow flags in the second half of the session due to some monitor lizards making their way onto the track. Both Ferrari drivers topped the session, Charles Leclerc slightly ahead. Max Verstappen was third in his Red Bull, with Lando Norris fourth and Lewis Hamilton fifth.

Free Practice 2

Ferrari continued their brilliant Friday ahead of the Singapore GP Qualifying. This time Carlos Sainz led his teammate in a 1-2 at the top, with George Russell trailing behind by 2 tenths. Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton rounded off the top 5. Both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez struggled in the Red Bull which was sliding around. They finished 8th and 7th respectively.

Ferrari showed good long-run pace as well. With Singapore being notoriously bad for overtaking, could this finally be the race where Red Bull’s run ends? Join in tomorrow to find out.
