Singapore Grand Prix Qualifying Results: Sebastian Vettel On Pole

Vettel was 11th in Friday's second free practice session, and he took a chunk out of one of the circuit's walls in the final pre-qualifying run-out on Saturday.

Ricciardo's Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen was second-fastest on the night, 0.556sec behind Ricciardo, with Hamilton (1:41.555) third and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas (1:42.104) fourth.

Indeed, Hamilton's qualifying time of 1:40.126s was over six-tenths of a second slower than pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel.

McLaren seemed to have picked up the pace following the announcement of their split from Honda, with sixth and seventh place by the end of the session.

As expected, Mercedes struggled to replicate its usual performance levels throughout qualifying in Singapore, which started with Red Bull seemingly in control.

Ricciardo said he was "a little envious" of Vettel's lap, adding: "But I'm still confident we will get victory". We definitely didn't anticipate Ferrari would be as strong as they were, I thought Red Bull would be as quick as they were but we remained hopeful.

Mercedessay they face a hard task stopping Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel retaking the championship lead in Singapore on Sunday. But this is a terrible track for overtaking; it will be a long race. Next to top the times was Ricciardo and Verstappen, the Red Bulls were first and second.

Despite saying he "threw the sink at it" around the demanding street circuit, Hamilton could only manage fifth on the grid as Mercedes were comfortably outqualified by Ferrari and Red Bull.

"It's down to us to produce a good vehicle, be competitive and then, of course, why would the drivers want to be anywhere else?" said Horner.

"It just highlights that we still have issues producing enough downforce and mechanical grip at a track like this, so that is an area we really need to work on".
