This weekend, the formula 1 performs the Singapore GP, 17th of 22 stages of the 2022 season in the top category of motorsport. The event marks the return of competition to the Marina Bay after two years, as the track did not host F1 in 2020 and 2021 because of Covid-19.
In addition, the race can consecrate the bi-championship of Max Verstappen. For this, however, the Dutch pilot of the red bull needs a combination of results, as shown in the motorsport.com in the table below:
|If Verstappen is…||Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) needs to be…||Sergio Pérez (Red Bull) needs to be…|
|1st place||9th or below||4th or below no fastest lap|
|1st place + Fastest lap||8th or below||4th or below|
Title dispute aside, the Singapore GP promises balance, as Red Bull boss Christian Horner projects difficulties for the team at Marina Bay. In this sense, the favoritism falls on Ferrari, which scored a one-two led by Spaniard Carlos Sainz in practice number 2.
Mercedes, which led the inaugural practice session with Briton Lewis Hamilton, could also join the fray. In any case, the weather issue can ‘mess up’ the peloton, as there is a possibility of rain on the Asian street track.
According to the weather forecast weather.com consulted in the late afternoon of this Friday, there is a possibility of “rain with thunderstorms” throughout Saturday in Marina Bay, with a little more than 40% probability of precipitation at the time of classification (21:00 local, 10:00 GMT). Before, in the third free practice, the chances of rain are higher, with more than a 70% chance of precipitation around 18:00 local time, 7:00 a.m. in Brasília time. Check the agenda:
