Venue: Marina Bay Street Circuit
Red Bull have a good record at the Marina Bay Street Circuit and that is reflected in our Singapore Grand Prix betting tips.
Sebastian Vettel gave the Austrian outfit a hat-trick of victories here between 2011 and 2013, while Daniel Ricciardo has made the podium for the past four renewals.
The Dutchman was quickest in both Q1 and Q2 sessions 12 months ago, before being edged out for pole by Vettel and Ferrari.
Sadly, a sluggish start on the Sunday proved costly as Verstappen crashed out following a collision with Kimi Raikkonen.
However, the 20-year-old is determined to make amends this weekend, as he seeks a second win of 2018 following July’s triumph in Austria.
“I think the whole team is looking forward to Singapore because we know we have a real chance to have a good result there,” said Verstappen on the F1 website.
“The race has been a strong one for us in the past and I think we should be able to challenge for a podium this year.
“I really enjoy driving there; the track has a lot of corners and is quite bumpy but it makes it all the more interesting to find a good set-up for the car.
“The night race and hot temperatures really test you to the limit, for me Singapore is physically the hardest race of the season. I have been preparing for quite a while.”
How the Italian Grand Prix finished:
1 Hamilton (Mercedes), 2 Raikkonen (Ferrari), 3 Bottas (Mercedes), 4 Vettel (Ferrari), 5 Verstappen (Red Bull), 6 Ocon (Force India), 7 Perez (Force India), 8 Sainz (Renault), 9 Stroll (Williams), 10 Sirotkin (Williams), 11 Leclerc (Sauber), 12 Vandoorne (McLaren), 13 Hulkenberg (Renault), 14 Gasly (Toro Rosso), 15 Ericsson (Sauber), 16 Magnussen (Haas), DNF Ricciardo (Red Bull), Alonso (McLaren), Hartley (Toro Rosso), DISQ Grosjean (Haas)
Teammate Ricciardo must also come into consideration, having previously prevailed in China and on the streets of Monaco this season.
The Australian has struggled since announcing he will join Renault next term, failing to finish in Belgium and Italy.
However, he insisted: “As everyone knows, I love street circuits. The feeling of driving on the edge, so close to the walls, is something you just can’t get enough of.
“It’s the original night race and the schedule is always pretty hectic but there is something kind of romantic about going to the track at night and then to bed at four or five in the morning.
“It’s a place where I also have good races and finish pretty strong. I’ve had four podiums and three second places in a row there, so it’s about time I won the damn thing.”
The 29-year-old was quickest in each of the two practice sessions 12 months ago, finished third in qualifying and second on race day.
