Hamilton admits Mercedes caught out by Ferrari pace

Max Verstappen not worried by Red Bull's reported Honda switch

Ricciardo won't be able to tune in for the Eagles next challenge, a sudden death semi-final against GWS Giants at Spotless Stadium on Saturday night, as he will be busy putting his Red Bull Car through its paces in qualifying around the Marina Bay Circuit.

Vettel's 49th career pole came on the track where he holds the record with four wins and six podiums overall, and his superiority showed in a lap record of 1 minute 39.491 seconds.

"I don't know where Ferrari have picked up there pace, it's odd", he admitted.

But aside from the dominant Red Bulls, Hamilton was half-a-second clear of his fourth-placed Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

Qualifying also is just constant improvement, even though the whole weekend we were a bit down on power, I don't know why we couldn't really solve it. We definitely didn't anticipate Ferrari would be as strong as they were, I thought Red Bull would be as quick as they were but we remained hopeful.

Kimi Raikkonen, who said "not a lot of things made sense" for Ferrari on Friday practice, continued to struggle as he posted the ninth best time, eight tenths behind teammate Vettel. Sebastian Vettel clouted the barriers with a bit more force to do some damage, as did Kevin Magnussen.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney , Contreras was also fined an unspecified amount for his actions. Contreras also got into it with Baker, at one point slamming his mask into the ground.

"This is a tough track for overtaking, it's usually just a long, long train".

Hamilton leads the championship, three points ahead of Vettel, top for the first time in the season after winning in Italy two weeks ago. At Monaco and Hungary — which are both notoriously hard to overtake on — Ferrari secured a 1-2 and left Mercedes lagging behind.

Lewis Hamilton says he is is aiming to become a vegan in an attempt to pursue the healthiest possible lifestyle and avoid damaging the planet. He threw the Ferrari at the track, taking huge speed into the 23 slow corners that define Marina Bay and he executed it to within inches of the walls, including just kissing one.

Nico Hulkenberg is seventh in his Renault and will start alongside the McLaren of Fernando Alonso.

But the 28-year-old, who won for Red Bull this year in Baku and scored the team's last pole position in Monaco last year, believes his vehicle has an edge over Vettel's Ferrari in race conditions. "After the last three years with some struggles that we went through together, to have time for them to make decisions. and after they take decisions, I will take mine".

Had he been on pole, the 19-year-old would have been the youngest driver in the history of the sport to start from the top slot. "Not ideal, I lost the auto on my second attempt in the middle sector but overall, I'm not yet happy".
