  1. Post update

    We’ve been in Singapore for 11 races and we’ve had the safety car out at least once every time!

  2. Super Singapore – 2011 Perez’s puncture

    “I’ve had a puncture,” says Sergio Perez back in 2011, trying to downplay the absolute mangled wreck of a car after an airborne clash with Schumacher.

  3. Post update

    This was the reaction from the Ferrari mechanics as Charles Leclerc took his fifth pole of the season. Great scenes.

  4. ‘A crazy lap’

    If you get a chance, watch the
    onboard camera video of Charles Leclerc’s pole lap at Singapore – it’s
    available on the Formula 1 website – It’s beautiful in its execution, and awe-inspiring in the couple
    of moments in which he comes so close to stacking it into the wall, especially
    on the exits of Turn Three and Turn 11.

    “It was quite a crazy lap,” he said. “There
    were quite a bit of mistakes – I lost the car quite a few times and I’ve seen
    myself in the wall at least twice or three times in the lap, but it felt
    amazing. The car was great. Exit of Turn Three and exit of Turn 11. These ones
    were quite big times. I was actually quite surprised I didn’t lose so much time
    by losing it that much but yeah, everything after that went smooth and I was
    just giving it all. It felt quite intense in the car but I’m very happy.”

  5. Give us a wave

  7. Ricciardo at the back

    But it was bad news yesterday for Daniel Ricciardo, who had got himself into Q3 only to find out his hard work counts for nothing and he was disqualified from qualifying.

    He gets demoted to the back.

  9. Super Singapore – 2017 first-lap drama

    Who could forget this from 2017? Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen all took each other out at the first corner.

    Will we have similar scenes today?

  10. ‘Intriguing’

    One
    of the best qualifying sessions of the year has set up an intriguing race
    around the Marina Bay circuit this evening. Charles Leclerc surprised even
    himself and his team and put a Ferrari on pole, and the stage seems set for a
    third battle in a row between the 21-year-old young pretender and the
    34-year-old five-time world champion alongside him on the grid.

    Sebastian
    Vettel is right behind them, with a point to prove after a difficult run, and
    Max Verstappen alongside him, a little downcast at the Red Bull’s relative lack
    of pace. It’s a recipe as tasty as a laksa.

  11. ‘We never give up’

    Lewis Hamilton is prepared for a fight on his hands today…

  12. Post update

    Even the main man was surprised…

  13. Leclerc takes surprise Singapore GP pole – read the report

    Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc took his third pole position in a row with a superlative performance in qualifying at the Singapore Grand Prix.

    The 21-year-old beat Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes by 0.191 seconds as both slipped ahead of early pace-setter Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari on their last laps.

    Vettel, who was nearly 0.2secs up on Leclerc after the first runs, aborted his final lap after an error.

    Hamilton snuck ahead of Vettel by 0.029secs to join Leclerc on the front row.

    Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was fourth, split from team-mate Alexander Albon by Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas.

  14. Post update

    First up, a quick look at yesterday’s thrilling qualifying.

  15. Post update

    Hello and welcome along to BBC Sport’s coverage of the Singapore Grand Prix. I’m Michael Emons and I will be talking you through the action today.

    We’ve been treated to a run of six brilliant races and, under the spectacular lights of Singapore, this could be something very special indeed.

    As always, our excellent radio commentary team of Jack Nichols, Jolyon Palmer and Jennie Gow will be on 5 Live Sports Extra from 13:00 BST.

  16. Three in a row for Leclerc?

    He’s been on pole three times in a row and has won the past two races, so can the super-talented Charles Leclerc lead from the front and win today’s Singapore Grand Prix?

    It’s all set up perfectly to be another thriller. We’ve got the man in form Leclerc and title leader Lewis Hamilton on the front row. Just behind them we have Sebastian Vettel, aiming to shut up his critics, and the always-exciting Max Verstappen.
