Coming into the Singapore GP weekend, there has already been tons of drama linked to Red Bull and it isn’t because of Max Verstappen’s title winning chances. With the cost cap debates surfacing all over Twitter, fans and teams have made their statements to the media regarding recent rumours circulating around the paddock stating that Red Bull have exceeded the cost cap by a substantial amount.
Apart from that, fans rejoiced as the Singapore GP finally came back on the F1 calendar after taking a hiatus of two years due to the COVID pandemic. That track has stayed almost the same but the cars on the other hand have changed massively and for the better. Singapore was the sport’s first night race when it was first brought to the calendar and the atmosphere that it created and the drama that it has provided is unprecedented.
After yesterday’s drama-filled qualifying session, Charles Leclerc is on pole position having earned his 9th one of the season while Sergio Perez is also starting on the front row. Lewis Hamilton put in an amazing lap for 3rd place on the grid while his teammate suffered and didn’t go through to Q3. Championship leader Max Verstappen had to abandon two pole laps due to fuel issues bringing his qualifying to a frustrating end. Hope is not lost as the main race will take place in a few hours.

Today’s race could mark an important event in history as Max Verstappen could clinch his second title under the lights in Singapore. Although this will only be possible if he manages to win the race whilst his title rival Charles Leclerc finishes below 9th place. This seems to be impossible as the Ferrari man has qualified on pole for today’s race.
