Max Verstappen does not get any further than the sixth fastest time in the final training for the Singapore Grand Prix.

    Giovinazzi on course to keep the coveted seat at Alfa Romeo
    The seat next to Kimi Räikkönen at Alfa Romeo is coveted for 2020, with Renault driver Nico Hülkenberg, among others, being the candidate. Yet it seems strong that Antonio Giovinazzi can still drive 'safely' this season for next year. "We want to help him improve further. There will be a time to talk about the future, but for now we are focused on Antonio and I think he is doing a good job step by step," says team boss Fred Vasseur.
