F1 announces Singapore GP contract extension

Essential to building the world's fastest vehicles, Formula One technology has been sought-after by various global industries and is closely monitored by racing fans who attend the annual Singapore event, which was Asia's first-ever street circuit.

How many laps will drivers race at the Singapore Grand Prix?

"I am glad that all parties have been able to agree on commercial terms for an extension as F1 and Singapore have been good for each other", said Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran, speaking at a press conference.

"I think it can bring Ferrari and us right into that battle".

The result now means, Nico Rosberg has overtaken Lewis Hamilton in the drivers championship as Rosberg leads with 273 points and 8 grand prix wins while Lewis Hamilton has 265 to his name with 6 grand prix wins this season.

"I believe we can win another [race]", said Ricciardo.

"As we have pushed to become better and stronger in every area, we have put the finger in the wound in order to understand the root causes of both our good performances and the bad ones", Wolff states.

For example, mission control can figure out what's going on in other cars, when drivers should change tires, and when engine power should be increased or reduced, Rhodes said.

Lewis and Mercedes definitely have momentum at the moment, claiming four victories from the last five races.

But there has also been steady customer activity in Vettel, especially as the interest in Hamilton causes Vettel's price to rise. In next three to four years, we can take the sport to a place that is good for all our partners and really adds new level of excitement and dimension to the sport. This year the Ferrari vehicle has shown to excel in twister, slower sections of tracks and as the Singapore track is in the centre of the city, we expect Ferrari to be very strong.

The venue's tight twists are expected to play to Ferrari and Red Bull's strengths but while the Milton Keynes-based squad shone yesterday, their Italian rivals were more inconspicuous.

He has arrived this year after six podiums in the last nine races.

Verstappen has had a year to forget.

Ricciardo is my dark horse for a win here, if Vettel suffers any problems.

Whilst just three points separate the top two, Bottas is now unlikely to challenge the hierarchy in the race to Abu Dhabi at the end of November.
