“The first runs on the Supersoft tyre on the streets of Marina Bay secured the fastest time for the Russian Red Bull driver, ahead of the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen who posted a 1.46.181 and the other Red Bull, driven by Daniel Ricciardo (1.46.256). Sebastian Vettel is fifth in his SF15-T in 1.46.487.
“Both he and his team-mate worked on assessing the car’s mechanical set-up. The tyres produced positive results on the Marina Bay tarmac, although it’s too early to have a verdict on degradation. Race pace seems good, although one should not ignore the fact that different fuel levels are run during the session.
