Singapore Grand Prix strategy guide

The Brit holds a slender three point lead over the German after his victory in Monza. In next three to four years, we can take the sport to a place that is good for all our partners and really adds new level of excitement and dimension to the sport.

It will be extremely tough for India to find a way back on the ever-crowded F1 calendar with more countries showing interest in hosting the high-profile race.

Singapore will continue to host Formula One races until 2021 after agreeing on a four-year deal on Friday.

Join us on The Roar for live blog coverage of the Singapore Grand Prix, from 10pm AEST as we see who survives the streets of Singapore. Maybe on a single lap we will have a better scenario and that is so important here. "So time on track is going to be very important".

"If you have a strong product, which is what we believe we have, and one that is well differentiated and has significant appeal for fans. then I think it can stand up to any kind of broader competition", he said.

He explained that while Singapore had signed two previous deals for five years each, this extension is for only four years to give organisers time to establish a working relationship with Liberty Media.

Turning to Sunday's race - we do think it will be a good weekend for Ferrari. "We have so far not got a chance to engage in depth yet, it has only been a little over half a year since the complete change in ownership".

Mercedes may well be leading the Constructors' championship by more than 60 points but it is the Driver's Championship which presents a very interesting case.

And for our pick this weekend - Max Verstappen has had some bad luck this year.

A return to what is described the "Monaco of the East" will see the drivers challenged at the most demanding circuit on the calendar - with the excessive heat turning it into an endurance contest. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is a close second with 225 points and fellow Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas is third with 197 points.

Hamilton not only has that disadvantage to combat, but personally he has struggled at Singapore over the last few years.

Ricciardo is my dark horse for a win here, if Vettel suffers any problems.

“Our focus as of today is making sure that the 21 races next year is everything as it can be.
