Formula 1 News : Tough Weekend For Lewis Hamilton

Current Formula 1 championship leader, Lewis Hamilton, is expecting a difficult weekend of racing as the F1 show moves into Singapore for the final stretch of the season.

The British driver, and three-time F1 Champion, took over as the championship leader from Sebastian Vettel on the 3rd September, after claiming his easy victory at the Italian Grand Prix.

Despite being championship leader, and coming off fabulous form, Hamilton will be expecting a tough task from the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari this weekend.

In a statement leading up to the Singapore GP, he has said:

“Maybe we don’t have the best package for this weekend, but we still have a great car. We can still be in the mix,”

“We can still do potentially better strategies. Maybe on a single lap we will have a better scenario and that is so important here.

“But it is a very challenging circuit here, getting the set-up right, getting the timing right, understanding the tyres. So time on track is going to be very important.”

Last year, Hamilton’s finish in this very same race cost him the championship, as he finished in third place. This was due to the Brit consistently making mistake through Free Practice 1, 2 and 3 before qualifying.

Mercedes GP, have backed up Hamilton’s claims regarding the difficulty of claiming victory this weekend, they have also suggested that this grand prix suits Ferrari down to the ground, making it Vettel’s race to lose.

If the German were to win, he would go back into the championship lead, with only 6 races to go. Momentum is vital in F1.

On the weekend, Vettel has stated:

“It should be a lot better than Monza but it will still be close,”

“It has been close wherever we go.

“I go by what I feel on track tomorrow (Friday). Here it’s important to trust the car. There is no reason to believe the car shouldn’t be very good but how good we don’t know.”

In addition to Vettel, Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo has also backed himself for the win this weekend, or at the very least getting on the podium.

He said: “I have confidence in myself and in the team,” he said. “I think we come here with a good chance. Third, second, second, both seconds were close to wins, hopefully this is the one.”
