Singapore Grand Prix 2019 Predictions

Singapore Grand Prix 2019 Betting Tips Explained

Charles Leclerc has been the star of the Formula 1 show since the 2019 season resumed at the start of the month. Leclerc and Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel had alarmingly gone through the first half of the season without recording a single race win, but better days were expected when the F1 ended its mid-season break with races in Belgium and Italy. Those two circuits played to the strengths of ‘The Prancing Horse’ and it was Leclerc who took full advantage, outshining Vettel to record his first wins since joining the Italian team at the end of last season. With those victories the 21-year-old Monegasque stated his claim to be considered Ferrari’s number one driver for the final few months of the campaign and results alone suggest he deserves that recognition. Leclerc has upstaged four-time world champion Vettel throughout the campaign and could continue to do so.

However, while Leclerc has made a play to be top dog at Ferrari, his back-to-back successes have not exactly catapulted him into the title race. World championship leader Lewis Hamilton may not have been winning races since the return to action, but he has been completing them and he has been securing podium places, and that is exactly what Mercedes will want from a man who still boasts a commanding lead at the top of the standings. Hamilton is 102 points clear of Leclerc despite the Ferrari star’s recent efforts and the closes to him at this time is team-mate Valtteri Bottas who is now 63 points behind the five-time world champion. If anybody is going to stop Hamilton it will be Bottas, but at this stage it is very difficult to see that happening.

Between now and the end of the season Hamilton just needs to ensure that he keeps adding points to his haul without getting into any situations that could take him out of a race, and it was this cautious approach that he took in Italy once a victory was beyond his reach. However, I do not expect to see Hamilton take his foot off the gas completely – he knows that a couple more successes should wrap things up and one of those could come on the streets of Singapore, where Hamilton has been victorious in each of the last two season. The defending world champion is a great pick to make it three-in-a-row on Sunday.

My second recommendation is to back Pierre Gasly for a points finish in Singapore. The young Frenchman replaced Daniel Ricciardo at Red Bull last winter, but he was unceremoniously demoted to Toro Rosso during the mid-season break after a disappointing first half of the campaign that saw him string together a bunch of points finishes but fail to make a major impression on his new employers. He responded to his demotion with a ninth-place finish in Belgium before narrowly missing out on a point in Italy, and team boss Franz Tost believes Gasly is already getting back to the level of performance that earned him his big move to Red Bull. Another points finish in Singapore would certainly help boost his confidence and cause, and given Toro Rosso’s decent form on street circuits already this year I fancy Gasly for a top-10 finish on Sunday.

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 two men have mastered this track quite like Vettel and Hamilton. The German dominated this race between 2011 and 2015 as he won it four times in a five-year spell, but he is no longer the all-time leader in Singapore Grand Prix race wins. Hamilton has now joined him on four race victories at Marina Bay after his back-to-back victories in 2017 and 2018 added to his wins in 2009 and 2014.

Location: Marina Bay Street Circuit, Marina Bay, Singapore
Number Of Laps: 61
