    GP Singapore 路 7 minutes ago

    Another 25 minutes - Bottas loses control of his car and slides sideways into the wall. He gets out unscathed and is already on his way to the pit box. The Mercedes of the Fin does have a lot of damage.

    GP Singapore 路 9 minutes ago

    26 more minutes - Code red. Valtteri Bottas is in the wall.

    GP Singapore 路 12 minutes ago

    28 minutes to go - Verstappen is the fastest time. With 1.40.259, the Red Bull driver is one and a half tenths faster than Vettel.

    GP Singapore 路 12 minutes ago

    Leclerc comes to a standstill at the start of the pit lane and has to be pushed back to the pit box by Ferrari engineers.

    GP Singapore 路 14 minutes ago

    32 more minutes - Problems for Charles Leclerc. The Monegask comes back to the pits in a hurry and with a suspected gearbox problem.

    GP Singapore 路 15 minutes ago

    Another 33 minutes - Vettel jumps to P1 and Verstappen sets the second time. The times are falling. The score:

  • Vettel 1.40,426
  • Verstappen +0.106
  • Bottas + 0.910
  • Hamilton +1.013
  • Albon +1.041
  • GP Singapore 路 17 minutes ago

    35 minutes to go - Verstappen and Albon have, surprisingly enough, only brought one set of mediums with them, so Red Bull does not see that tire as a real opportunity for the race. They both have ten sets of softs. Mercedes and Ferrari have three sets of medium per driver.

    GP Singapore 路 19 minutes ago

    Another 37 minutes - Mercedes is currently doing a long run on the hard tire. We may also see this again in the race at Hamilton and Bottas, who both have two sets hard at their disposal. This also applies to Max Verstappen. The Ferrari drivers both have only one set of hard tires, so they will probably only ride on soft and medium in the training and do not see the hard tire as a serious option for the race.

    GP Singapore 路 27 minutes ago

    44 minutes to go - Strikingly enough, Bottas (1.41,900) on the hard tire is faster than Verstappen (1.41,938) on the soft tire.

    GP Singapore 路 28 minutes ago

    Another 49 minutes - Verstappen enters the pits after a run of nine rounds. Only Bottas is on the asphalt. The score:

  • Hamilton 1.41.449
  • Verstappen +0.469
  • Stroll +1.322
  • Bottas +1.572
  • Kvyat +1.881
  • GP Singapore 路 30 minutes ago

    54 minutes to go - Now it is Lewis Hamilton who is just under half a second faster than Verstappen. The Brit and the Dutchman alternate at the top of the times list.

    Verstappen turns on and drives half a second from Hamilton's time. Of course, it is still the first free practice, but the first signs can be called very carefully. # F1

    Another 56 minutes - Verstappen increases the pace and jumps to P1 again. With 1.41.938 he is four tenths faster than Hamilton, who is second.

    GP Singapore 路 42 minutes ago

    Another 60 minutes - Hamilton has no damage after the touch茅 with Hamilton, as he clocked the fastest time in his first timed run. The score:

  • Hamilton 1.42.412
  • Bottas +0.629
  • Verstappen +0.665
  • Kvyat + 0.948
  • H眉lkenberg + 0.982
  • GP Singapore 路 44 minutes ago

    61 minutes left - Touch茅! Sainz and Hamilton touch each other. Both drivers are in their out-lap, so the speed is not very high.

    Another 65 minutes - Bottas dives through the time of Verstappen with three hundredths. His teammate Lewis Hamilton is not yet on the times list.

    GP Singapore 路 one hour ago

    Only 67 more - Verstappen clocked the fastest time by far in his first timed run. With 1.43.077, the Dutchman is more than half a second faster than Leclerc. Verstappen (soft) did ride on a softer tire than Leclerc (medium).

    GP Singapore 路 one hour ago

    Only 68 minutes left - Verstappen scores purple (fastest) times in sector 1 and 2.

    GP Singapore 路 one hour ago

    Only 73 more - Of all the sessions this weekend, this first free practice is by far the least important. The opening training is, in contrast to the qualification and race - the sessions that really matter - held in the daylight. The data that the teams collect, for example about the behavior of the tires, is therefore not valuable. This session is suitable for testing new components.

    Vettel puts moderate season into perspective
    That Sebastian Vettel is not doing so well this season is an understatement. The four-time world champion stacks up the errors and is outclassed by teammate Charles Leclerc. At the press conference prior to the Singapore Grand Prix, the German puts his situation into perspective. "Of course it's not good, but it's not a disaster either. I am currently not at the level I want to achieve. But things like this happen to us all sometimes." Yet he gives a small indication of where things might go wrong: confidence in the car is sometimes missing. "I don't have the right feeling or trust here and there," he agrees. "That's in the details. Hopefully everything will fall into place. Until then it's just head down and go."
