A Closer Look
Bookmakers also offer betting on the weekend’s action. Have your say on the race winner or a number of specials. These include podium finish, points finish, qualifying, fastest lap and plenty more besides. Lewis Hamilton conceded ground last weekend, will he roar back this time out?
Sebastian Vettel recorded his first Grand Prix victory of the new season when landing the Singapore Grand Prix. He was allowed to pass teammate Charles Leclerc during the closing stages of the race, although the youngster wasn’t happy about it, branding the tactical decision of Team Ferrari unfair. We haven’t heard the last of that one but the team will be eager to focus on the positives. They bagged a 1-2 in Singapore and, in doing so, proved there’s life left in this season.
