Forest fires in Indonesia has drastically made the air in Singapore very hazy & could pose a threat during the weekend.

Haas' modified livery for the remainder of the season after cutting ties from Rich Energy. The modification is quite a lot.

Not really that much, all we can see from there is the front wing endplate no longer has their name, and the airbox fin has lost the name and become solid gold. It's only really highlights that have changed.

This probably

Bottas was properly humiliated by Hamilton around Singapore in both 2017 and 2018. The difference in qualifying both years was around 7 tenths, and the race pace gap was even more embarrassing.

:lol:

Very funny reaction by Toto. When Valteri made the mistake while chasing down Leclerc he had a similar reaction. I suspect there will be more of those next year, which undoubtedly will be Bottas’s last at Merc.

Is it due to be very hot this weekend in Singapore and thus cause Merc problems like in Austria?

Believe Mercedes sorted there cooling issues out in Germany and furthermore Hungary where the update was validated further.

I dont think cooling will be an issue anymore for Mercedes.. unless they revert to a closed-up package here to maximise downforce.

I presume that the implication is that they are suggesting Wollf will be thinking "I made the wrong choice" and Ocon will be thinking "Seriously, they chose him over me?"

On a less soap opera note, what is the differential between softs and hards, because Hamilton being only 6 tenths behind Verstappen could be ominous if it's a large delta.

Yes, good point also noted that Max seems to be flying through his soft tyres!

Surely minimum of a 1 second delta?

Probably needs one good set for Q3 and hope to do Q2 on a set of mediums?

Leclerc's got a gearbox and immediately jumps ahead of Vettel, Hamilton top on mediums.

Albon doing his best Gasly impression. 1 sec away from Max. Jeez. I guess that car is just tailored to Max's driving style.
Ferrari are nowhere They just don't have any downforce compared to RB and Merc do they?
Looks like pole will be between Max and Lewis. Noone else is close at the moment.

Not watched FP2 yet but Andrew Benson's report said both Ferrari's were compromised on their qualifying sims, not sure how much closer that would have made them. He also said that Hamilton's race pace was around a second per lap quicker than Verstappen on the softs

Traffic on both Ferrari's sims. Think Vettel finally got his time on 3rd or 4th attempt. Ham 1s quicker but it looks like he was pushing the tyre, whilst Bottas was looking after his. So it looks like Mercedes split the program.
Albons car was bottoming out over the bumps; that's why he overshot. Even his front wing was scraping the ground right through the last couple of turns. Max complained about the same issue.

I can't say he's exactly done badly. In niether of the last 2 races since he got a new contract has he looked to lack pace in the same way as last year and he also has only collected 1 less point than hamilton. And that is only because of the fastest lap point which many don't seem keen on. I don't think Bottas has usually looked great here, but i think he will get closer with another practice session then qualifying. The qualifying gaps between them overall this year have usually been hardly anything on average.

Is anyone taking grid position penalties? Did LeClerc change a transmission, and if so will that relegate him to the back?
