Singapore Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton fastest in Singapore first practice

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was a surprise fastest in first practice at the Singapore Grand Prix. Hamilton beat Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who could clinch a second title this weekend, by 0.084 seconds. Their times are not directly comparable as Hamilton’s came later, when the track would have improved in grip. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc was third, 0.402secs off the pace, ahead of Red Bull’s Sergio Perez and Hamilton’s team-mate George Russell. Alonso had been second to Verstappen before a gearbox oil leak curtailed his running after his first run. To win the title, Verstappen must first win the race and then hope other results go his way.
