Sainz on pole in Singapore as Red Bull’s hopes fade

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz Jr. secured pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix, while Red Bull had a disappointing qualifying session. Max Verstappen’s record-breaking winning streak appeared to be coming to an end as he failed to make the top 10. Lance Stroll also suffered a heavy crash in the first phase of qualifying.

Carlos Sainz’s pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix marked his second consecutive pole and Ferrari’s third in four races. Sainz expressed confidence in his pace and his desire to secure a win after finishing third in the previous race.

Red Bull’s performance was a shock, with Verstappen and Sergio Perez failing to make the top 10. Verstappen’s hopes of extending his winning streak were dashed, and he expressed frustration over the team’s sudden lack of competitiveness. Verstappen acknowledged the difficulty of overtaking on the Singapore circuit and conceded that victory was unlikely.

In the absence of the dominant Red Bulls, other teams had a chance to compete for victory. Sainz capitalized on this opportunity and secured pole position with a strong lap time. George Russell of Mercedes qualified alongside Sainz on the front row.

The rest of the grid saw Charles Leclerc, Lando Norris, Lewis Hamilton, Kevin Magnussen, Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon, Nico Hulkenberg, and Liam Lawson qualifying in the top 10.

The qualifying session was marred by Lance Stroll’s heavy crash, which brought out the red flags and caused a delay. Stroll was able to walk away from the wreckage and was taken to the medical center for checks. Oscar Piastri also suffered from the red flag interruption, leaving him in a difficult position for the race.

Overall, the qualifying session in Singapore had significant implications for the championship race, with Ferrari showing strong performance and Red Bull facing unexpected challenges. The stage is set for an exciting and unpredictable race.
