    With a whole host of stories coming out of F-1 such as Kimi Raikkonen leaving Ferrari and going to Sauber in 2019, the series heads to Singapore for their Grand Prix. Hamilton has a nice lead over Vettel and Mercedes came out this week vowing to turn the operation upside down to match wits with Ferarri. Should be another tight race.

    In FP2, Raikkonen continues mash the gas leading Hamilton and the Red Bulls while Vettel continues to screw-up.

    When the pressure mounts, Champions rise to meet it.

    Lewis on pole with a lap that is 3.4 second faster than last year's pole.

    An angry Seb behind Max on lap one equals carnage. May not be turn one, but each guy is a loose cannon and they will come together.

    Yep, when the end of the championship fight grows near, this champion digs in. Hamilton will be tough to beat in the coming weeks.

    The safety car has been deployed and the race is just 2 laps old. Yellow out.

    At lap 12, Vettel is the fastest among the top five.

    Hamilton takes the race followed by Verstappen for second, Vettel for third, and Botas for fourth. Vettel was 39 seconds behind Verstappen who was 8 seconds behind Hamilton. Verstappen scores a moral victory has he comes back onto the podium after a long drought.

    Congrats to Hank for getting the correct call on the old podium finish but not the complete sweep on the new contest configuration. Hank continues to secure third place now. BSF continues to lead but the gap between first and second is closing. Onward we go to Russia in two weeks.

    Roses are red
    Violets are Blue
    Ferrari botched strategy
    So, nothing is new.

    You inched a little closer sir, the drivers championship is Hamilton's now. No chance Vettel can come back but our competition continues to intensify

    Yea, BSF. These things are not over until the last race and this year is no exception.

    As an AMG owner all I can say is Lewis, Lewis, Lewis!!!

    And Ricciardo just came up a wee bit short. He wanted 4th. Just not quite...


    Here I come on the run with a burger on a bun...
