No pole but Red Bull confident of Singapore win

Lauda banking on Ferrari in Singapore

Lauda banking on Ferrari in Singapore

His first run of the top-10 shootout put him in first place and he improved even further to claim his fourth Singapore pole and fifth of 2017 - Vettel using every inch of the track as he brushed the wall on his way to a new lap record of one minute and 39.491 seconds. I think I need to calm down first. The Ferrari and Red Bull drivers took advantage of their relatively sweeter handling cars (and with pretty powerful and driveable engines in their own right) to annex the front two rows of the starting grid.

Vettel came into the weekend trailing chief title rival Lewis Hamilton by a slender three points, though Singapore's twisty streets were expected to provide Ferrari with a chance to claw back some momentum in the championship fight.

Ricciardo suggested Red Bull could dominate the Singapore GP after his strong showing on Friday and still expects victory in Sunday's race, despite only qualifying third. "I thought Red Bull would be as quick as they were", he said.

There were few smiles at Mercedes, with the champions arriving in Singapore fearing it would be a tough weekend but secretly hoping for better.

"The vehicle was tricky but it came alive and it was getting better and better as the night progressed, so I'm really happy that we got it done".

"During the race it will be hard to pass him so we have to see on the first lap".

Manger said Tessier's appearance at the news conference was a "calculated decision" made by police and Wallen's family. Police officials said that Wallen's body was found after detectives executed a search warrant of the friend's farm.

"I am still confident we will get victory", said Ricciardo.

"I got everything I could out of the auto - I got everything and more, I literally threw the sink at it".

"You always go for it if there is a gap and if it's possible", Verstappen said. The vehicle was tricky but was getting better, better and better. Red Bull, however, is restrained by an underperforming Renault engine, whereas Ferrari's power unit is nearly on par with Mercedes'. "And that is Ferrari and Red Bull".

"I got everything I could out of the auto, everything and more", he added. "I definitely didn't anticipate Ferrari would be as strong as they were".

Nico Hulkenberg was best of the rest in seventh for Renault, with Valtteri Bottas failing to improve on his final run and ending up six tenths adrift of Mercedes teammate Hamilton.
