The fight between the two Renault-engined teams will be tense

The midfield battle this season has been as tight as it ever has. Before the Summer break, McLaren looked fairly comfortable in 4th position but after poor weekends at both Spa and Monza, Renault are creeping back into contention for the 'best of the rest' position. 

McLaren are currently on 83 points and Renault are on 65. 

"Renault had a very strong weekend both in qualifying and with a fourth and fifth in the race for Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg, their aero package working a treat on Monza's high-speed challenges," Brundle said to Sky Sports. 

"With McLaren having a relatively miserable eight days giving away a bundle of points with both cars, the fight between the two Renault-engined teams will be tense in the closing stages."

McLaren will need to start performing at Singapore if they are going to be able to halt Renault's momentum.
