Terrible Saint took the pole position, disaster for Red Bull and… out of the top ten!


All… somersault in her qualifiers Singapore! On a subversive Saturday that saw ups and downs, o Carlos Sainz took second in a row pole position and 5th overall in his career, trailing every other driver.

THE George Russell will start from the front row of the grid, while the qualifying tests were disastrous for both Red Bull Racingafter Max Verstappen – Sergio Perez were left out of the top ten.

Singapore suits Lewis Hamilton, as he is the driver who has entered Q3 more times than anyone else at the track in question (p. 14).

Testing was incredibly varied, but also delayed a lot as there was a red flag when Lance Stroll hit the barriers and wrecked his car with debris littering the track. The Canadian driver will logically start from the bottom position of Sunday’s Grand Prix, while Zou, Sargent, Piastri and Bottas were excluded from Q1.

The two Red Bull Racings looked quite slow, while Verstappen starred in two incidents, preventing rivals from making laps, and it remains to be seen whether he will be penalized by the stewards. The two time world champion looked to be having an issue, he had the 10th fastest lap and was in danger, eventually paying for it as Lawson, in just his 3rd race, flew out of the Dutch driver! Like Verstappen, Gasly, Perez, Albon and Tsunoda failed to enter the top ten and claim pole position.

Verstappen was extremely upset after his disqualification, while Red Bull Racing, the team that has won all the Grands Prix so far this season, did not have a car in Q3!

In the end, in the last quarter of testing there was not a huge battle for pole position. From his first lap, Saint showed that he is in excellent condition, but also how much he has been wronged by Ferrari’s strategy and car, taking the lead. With Russell starting alongside him and Leclerc, Norris, Hamilton, Magnussen, Alonso, Ocon, Hulkenberg and Lawson rounding out the top ten.
