I would pleasantly surprised if Ferrari is competitive in Singapore...
No high speed corners or long straights so they can run the car softer to manage the bumps which is where they used to excel. I expect Leclerc to sit on pole.

Besides that, after Silverstone updates Mr Elliot said that the bouncing/porpoising issues are long gone now, had I`m not wrong...

A thread about Lewis' pole in 2018 including his telemetry and Max's telemetry.
The whole lap was amazing but the greatest part was between turns 7 and 9. Max had his engine cutting but did a great lap too, although even without his engine cutting he wouldn't have been on pole but something lap 0.1 or 0.15 behind instead of 3 tenths :

looks like there's a real threat of rain on Sunday, and not only the usual showers disappearing in the evening anyway.

Most overhyped pole lap I've seen maybe ever, it was good, but Verstappen was probably better still. You just can't really do much when you always have to compensate for 0.5s straight line deficit even in singapore of all places.

in 2016 singapore quali Nico beat lewis by 0.7 tenth and riccardo by 0.6 tenth , they was not much fanfare or hyping back then.it just show the state of f1 media that its biased.

FIA eases F1 porpoising metric from Singapore GP

Formula 1’s porpoising metric has been tweaked from this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix to help remove potential problems caused by bumpy tracks, Motorsport.com has learned.

Sep 29, 2022, 11:33 AM

As the result of the extreme bouncing earlier in the season that left drivers complaining about safety implications, the FIA announced ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix that it was introducing an Aerodynamic Oscillation Metric that teams would not be allowed to exceed.

Teams had to ensure that their car was below the maximum bouncing limit over each lap, or there was a risk of them being sanctioned on safety grounds.

In a document sent to teams ahead of the Montreal race, they were warned that breaching the rules would carry the risk of cars being excluded from events.

F1’s head of single seater matters Nikolas Tombazis said in that note: “Any car whose AOM exceeds the stipulated AOM [limit] will be reported to the stewards with the recommendation that they be excluded from the results of the sprint or race."

Following some debate with teams about the implications of the metric, it finally came in to force from the Belgian Grand Prix.

By that stage of the campaign, with teams having a much better understanding of the forces that triggered much of the early season porpoising, no team has fallen foul of the metric so far.
================================
However, there had been some concern that some of the end of season races on bumpier tracks – including Singapore and Austin – could have triggered particular headaches.

It kinda feels like continuous tailoring of the rules/regs whenever it suits best, which starts to become quite silly.

Measuring vertical bouncing was such an important neccessity because drivers would otherwise end up in a vegetative state sooner or later, new year's regulations were changed by 25mm .. and what more.

And yet, when we race a hugely bumpy track with 23 turns for about 2 hrs in the roughest of conditions, suddenly the readings of those sensors should be treated more lenient.

I wonder how much longer I can keep myself interested ..

Comical if that’s the truth with the metric. Seems absolutely pointless having one.

The GPDA should stand against that. But bet they won’t
