Singapore GP Red Bull’s best chance to defeat Mercedes – Verstappen

Max Verstappen is believes that Red Bull can defeat Mercedes at Singapore after victory at May’s Spanish GP, Monaco was a bad luck for Red Bull, which nearly missed top podium following their own mistake.

The young F1 sensation Verstappen produced a leading lap-time in FP1 ahead of Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo – Nico Rosberg hit back in FP2 to top the times by 0.275s from Kimi Raikkonen and 0.4s from Max.

First Practice Session: 1:45.823, Position: 1, Laps: 25
Second Practice Session: 1:44.532, Position: 3, Laps: 29

“It’s definitely our best chance [for a win]. After Monaco, this is definitely the best track for us.” Verstappen said following the session.

“It was a positive day for us and we can be happy with the balance of the car. For FP2 we weren’t fully there but we know what areas we need to work on and improve. But the car felt good, we are more or less there and we had a good start to the weekend.” Max added in practice report.

“The tyres worked really well as well, I was happy with the ultrasofts, there was quite a difference between them and the supersofts. I think it will be an interesting battle between us, Mercedes and Ferrari, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Second Practice Session: 1:44.557, Position: 4, Laps: 26

“This circuit is always difficult. You’re pushing the limit on a street circuit and you want to be comfortable in qualifying so today is the day to experiment. I had a bit of a spin and touched the barrier but the car was more or less okay. It’s hot, it’s tricky and everything is a little bit on the edge here for sure, but to find a few tenths on this circuit can be quite easy, because there are so many corners and with the tyres overheating in the last sector you can lose or gain a lot.”

“We still feel that we can get a little bit more speed out of the car so that’s what tonight is for. Even if we find a few small things, then they will hopefully add up to quite a bit of lap time here tomorrow.”
