The track may be a bit faster this year as turn 16 has been made a little easier.

As usual in Singapore :D I heard you shouldn't trust the forecast since the weather there is really unpredictable.

Well I hope the qualifying will be dry. And for the RBR guys I hope it’s gonna be a dry race as well.

Hoping for a nice battle with no tears for them. Both are quick around here.

So a gut feeling for quali:
1. Seb
2. Ham
3. Max

Race:
1. Max
2. Ric
3. Kimi

Vettel will have some spacial awareness issues.. and takes out Hamilton.. I hope they both still can race and have to plow through the field together and fight for p5 and p6

This turned out to be an interesting race last year. Hoping for some rain but without the first lap hi jinx. We're do a champion's battle royale.
Countdown to 91: 10 more victories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Interesting to see Ferrari only brought one set of softs each. That didn't work out too well at Monza.

The interesting question here is can you do Hyper>Ultra one stop?
If not which is gonna be faster Hyper>Ultra>Ultra(or Hyper again) vs Ultra>Soft

The step makes it interesting imo.

Well, it's a choice.... in a place like Singapore track position is key, so you need to tune your car almost entirely for Q. Monza is a bit different.
