Singapore Grand Prix predictions for the race on Sunday, September 17. The 2017 Formula 1 season continues with the 14th race taking place at Marina Bay – but who will be victorious? Read on for our all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Singapore Grand Prix 2017 Betting Tips Explained

Lewis Hamilton is once again sitting pretty at the top of the Drivers’ Championship standings after making a superb start to the second half of the season. The Mercedes ace has produced dominant showings to win in Belgium and Italy, and those back-to-back success have propelled him top spot in the standings, just three points clear of Sebastian Vettel.

It would be easy to get carried away and back Hamilton again following those strong performances at Spa and Monza, but those two circuits and the conditions the races took place in played right into the hands of Mercedes. That cannot be said about the Marina Bay Street Circuit, with the Ferrari cars more suited to the slow track and hot conditions in Singapore.

“On the surface, Singapore is the kind of circuit that should favour both Ferrari and Red Bull,” Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff admitted. “Both have shown strong performance on low-speed circuits demanding maximum downforce, and we have found life more difficult at those places in 2017.

“Sometimes, characteristics like this are simply in the DNA of a car. Nevertheless we learned a lot from our struggles in Monaco, raised our level of performance significantly in Hungary and we have made good progress in understanding what we need to do in order to get the most from the chassis.”

Those words are not mind games from Wolff – they are the true facts. Ferrari have the upper-hand here and that is great news for Vettel who is desperate to give his championship challenge a shot in the arm after that third-placed finish in Italy. I believe he will. The German has enjoyed great success at the Marina Bay Street Circuit over the years, winning the Singapore Grand Prix on a record-setting four occasions, and Vettel should be standing on the top step of the podium at the conclusion of this year’s race.

My other recommendation also plays into what Wolff said about which teams will perform well here.  Red Bull have had both drivers finish in the Top 6 in each of the past three seasons and Daniel Ricciardo, in particular, has an excellent track record here.

Not only does the Australian hold the lap record for the Marina Bay Street Circuit, he has also finished on the podium in each of the past three seasons, following up a third-placed finish in 2014 with second-placed finishes in 2015 and 2016. That sort of track record, and the fact he has missed out on podium place in just three of the last nine races, makes Ricciaro a solid pick for a Top 3 Finish in Singapore once again.

Winning 2017 Formula 1 Betting Tips So Far

The 2016 Formula 1 campaign was a highly profitable one for the team as our resident tipster Leigh Copson averaged one winning bet on every race that season, and he has been in decent form in 2017 with 10 winners so far.

Having backed a winner in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, he did the double by successfully tipping a race win for Lewis Hamilton and a points finish for Sergio Perez at the Chinese Grand Prix.
A fourth winner of the campaign followed as Sebastian Vettel’s Bahrain Grand Prix victory secured a 15/8 success, and Sergio Perez kept the good run going as his top-six finish in the Russian Grand Prix wrapped up a 7/2 win.

Daniel Ricciardo's top six finishes in Monaco and Canada made it seven winning bets for the season before Lewis Hamilton provided number eight when he claimed pole position for the British Grand Prix, and it was that man Ricciardo who delivered our ninth success with a third-placed finish in Belgium.

Lewis Hamilton's pole position/race winner double was not quite enough to land us a tidy winner at Monza - we had him to set the fastest lap too - but we did have won Italian Grand Prix winner as Kimi Raikkonen failed to finish on the podium.

Singapore Grand Prix Circuit

The Marina Bay Street Circuit is one of the newest venues on the Formula 1 calendar having debuted less than a decade ago, and much like the circuit in Monaco it is built alongside a harbour.

It is a gruelling race for drivers as they battle the heat and humidity despite this being a night – Lewis Hamilton once said it was “like sitting in a sauna wearing a full fireproof race suits and helmet. But it does remain a popular circuit with them – Sebastian Vettel once called it a “classic” track – and many have admitted it provides a huge adrenaline rush because drivers go so close to the walls on several occasions during a lap.

No man has mastered this track quite like Vettel, who is a four-time Singapore Grand Prix winner at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, while his world title rival Lewis Hamilton has also enjoyed success with a couple of race wins. But when it comes to a single lap, Daniel Ricciardo set the time to beat in 2016.

Location: Marina Bay Street Circuit, Marina Bay, Singapore
Number Of Laps: 61
Lap Length: 3.147 miles
Lap Record: Daniel Ricciardo, 1 minutes 47.187 seconds (2016)
