LIVEBLOG | First free practice for the Singapore Grand Prix 2022

 

After a two-year absence, the Singapore GP will return to the F1 calendar in 2022. The race on the street circuit was cancelled twice due to the coronavirus pandemic but can occur 'normally' this year. The evening race is loved by many drivers, as the tight and twisty circuit demands a lot from the drivers.

Opportunity for Verstappen

For the first time, Verstappen can secure his second world title. With a 116-point lead, it seems more of a question of when than if Verstappen will win the title, but in Singapore, for the first time, it could happen. To do so, Verstappen does need to win the race and is then also dependent on the performances of Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez. Singapore's first free practice session will be held at 18:00 local time. 

The circuit characteristics seem to fall towards Ferrari. Red Bull Racing have been strong on the straights, but this corner rarely gives drivers time to relax. That being said, this weekend we'll get a really good indication on how strengths and weaknesses have changed through the year.
