F1 Singapore GP LIVE: New safety car after Tsuoda crash… Follow the race with us
Written by madishthestylebar

4:27 p.m. : Everyone will crowd behind the safety car and no one will be able to warm up their slick tyres. Meanwhile, Hamilton apologizes after his mistake earlier, “we’re still in the game” trying to reassure his teams.

4:24 p.m .: Tsunoda in the background! He can no longer move and gets out of his racing car, safety car is coming. We’ll see if the cards are reshuffled with this second intervention of the safety car today.

4:23 p.m. : Everyone is now on slicks, the track is dry.

4:22 p.m. : That’s it, Hamilton goes to the pits to tighten the wing and switch to medium tyres. 13 seconds of immobilization.

4:21 p.m. : Yeah ok, big late braking from Hamilton! But the Briton had enough of a lead over Max to reverse gear and get back into the race without being overtaken.

4:18 p.m .: Ahahaha Hamilton who hits the wall in the face but manages to leave directly and insert himself between Verstappen and Norris! Will have to review this in slow motion, I didn’t understand everything there. But I’d be surprised if Hamilton could escape a pit stop, the front wing took off.

4:16 p.m. : Russell is the only one to have tried the bet of slick tires and here he is last in the race, soon a lap behind Perez. Flair.

4:13 p.m .: Popopopo Norris and Verstappen who almost crashed badly at the restart! What is this brake from the British ??? I’m surprised we haven’t heard Max smash it on the radio yet.

4:08 p.m .: The Ocon box which in turn lets go! Virtual safety car, the leaders decide to stay on track.

4:07 p.m. : Hamilton behind Sainz: “He’s wasting my time, he’s so slow…”. And bam, in the muzzle!

4:07 p.m. : Sniff…

4:02 p.m .: Verstappen continues his recovery tranquillou bilou (yes, I’m 55) (no it’s not true). Here he is 6th just behind Chuck Norris.

3:57 p.m .: Ahhhh terrible blow for Alpine and Alonso! The Spaniard gave up due to an engine problem when he had just beaten Kimi Raikkonen’s record for the most GPs contested (351 vs 350).

3:53 p.m. : After Singapore, I announce the beginning of the deluge on Barbès City. But I reassure everyone, I’m under a warm plaid, the live should not suffer from this Breton weather.

3:50 p.m .: Leclerc loses ground on Checo Perz (+2.7 sec).

3:46 p.m. : Sainz announces that we will soon be able to switch to slick tyres. Verstappen absolutely disagrees. “Always too wet,” he told his teams at the microphone.

3:43 p.m. : I have to admit that it’s not the craziest race of the season. Positions are fixed almost everywhere. Fortunately Verstappen is there to put some pep in there. Less than a second from Alonso, the kid put a lot of pressure on the Alpine driver.

3:37 p.m. : Sainz is picking up … He will not have lasted three laps after the passage of the safety before being dropped again by Leclerc and Perez.

3:33 p.m.: Hello Pierrot! Verstappen continues and drops Gasly to take 7th place.

3:32 p.m. : Sainz took advantage of this safety car to get back to the ass of Leclerc and Perez, Verstappen directly places a boost and recovers his initial eighth place.

3:31 p.m. : Green flag, go ahead gentlemen!

3:25 p.m.: 8th lap of the race and here is the first safety car following this collision, some will take the opportunity to return to the pits. And Latifi will take the opportunity to go to the corner, end of the race for the culprit of the day.

3:24 p.m. : It is clearly the fault of Latifi who blocked him against the wall.

3:23 p.m.: Guanyu Zouh is already out, thanks for stopping by, boy.

3:21 p.m. : Verstappen went hunting for Pierre Gasly and Sebastian Vettel. The three drivers stick together, there will be a show in this small group.

3:20 p.m. : Norris notices that the track is not drying as quickly as expected.

3:17 p.m. : Sainz is dropped by Leclerc and Perez, already 5 seconds behind for the Spaniard. For his part, Max the threat grabs a few places, here he is 9th.

3:16 p.m. : Hamilton smashes his teams by complaining about the choice of tyres.

3:15 p.m. : That’s what it looks like at the head of the race. Perez took control, followed by the two Ferraris of Leclerc (2nd) and Sainz (3rd). Behind we find Hamilton, Norris and Alonso.

3:09 p.m .: SERGIO PEREZ GETS AWAY! Charles Leclerc was squeezed from the start of the race. Catastrophic departure for Verstappen who has just given up three or four places, oh what a mess!

3:08 p.m.: WE’RE THERE! TURN UP THE VOLUME (REGISTERED TRADEMARK) AND GO TO THE FIRST TURN!!!!

3:07 p.m. : The drivers have started their formation lap.

2:59 p.m. : We’re going back to Max Verstappen’s rant yesterday after he ran out of gas during his last qualifying lap, when he seemed to be on his way to stealing the pole from Leclerc. It is understandable, Singapore is clearly not the circuit most conducive to overtaking, the Dutchman will struggle with this 8th place at the start.

2:50 p.m.: The “piercing gate” around Lewis Hamilton

Little anecdote lolilol before the start of the GP. Yesterday, Mercedes ate a fine of 25,000 euros for not having declared that Lewis Hamilton had disputed the qualifications with his nose piercing. Summoned by the FIA, the Briton will not be sanctioned since he had a doctor’s certificate. As a reminder, the authority decided to crack down this season by prohibiting drivers from driving with jewelry, which had the gift of annoying the seven-time world champion throughout the season.

“I’ve had this nose piercing for years,” said the current sixth in the world championship at a press conference. Since the beginning of the year, I have received exemptions until I find a solution. I tried to remove it, but got an infection from it. The doctors advised me to keep it. It’s crazy to have to talk about something so insignificant. »

2:45 p.m. : The last time it rained at the Singapore GP, this is what happened.

2:31 p.m. : For Romain Grosjean, the new Canal consultant, we should start on the intermediary. Thank you for screwing up the suspense Roro, now I pass for an apple.

2:30 p.m. : From what we understand, there are completely soaked parts and others already dry. It’s going to be a storm under a skull when it comes to choosing the tyres. We will see the different strategies of the teams, who will all watch each other out of the corner of their eyes before the start of the race.

2:25 p.m. : This is what it looked like an hour ago. Since then it has really calmed down, the start should not be postponed again.

2:20 p.m. : I don’t know what you are doing to kill time, here we watch Lorient-Lille, there too under hellish downpours. In Lorient, I mean, not in my living room.

2:05 p.m. : Well then it’s worse than I imagined. Departure will not take place before 3:05 p.m. So you can resume normal activity and put me on mute, I won’t take it badly.

1:50 p.m. : In the meantime, I can only recommend this paper by Adrien, our Formula 1 specialist at 20 Minutes, who looked into the possible arrival of Pierre Gasly at Alpine next season. If the prospect of forming a cocorico duo with Esteban Ocon in a French stable is enticing, we are still far from it according to the agent of Gasly, whom we were able to contact.

1:45 p.m .: Saluuuuuuuut the fifous! Welcome home to follow this Singapore Grand Prix. The start should be slightly delayed due to heavy rain falling on the track.

It’s been a long time since the suspense has been in the trunk in this F1 season which will consecrate Max Verstappen no matter what, and this for the second time in a row, so let’s be grateful to the Dutchman for giving us some reasons to vibrate again a little. Finishing a surprising 8th place in qualifying yesterday, all due to a lack of fuel in the tank, Verstappen will have to put out the perfect race today if he wants to claim first place and the title. that goes with. But it won’t be easy, in a GP where overtaking is complicated and where his rival Charles Leclerc will start in pole position.

>> Meet around 1:30 p.m. to follow this GP of Singaoour
