Singapore looks like an ideal circuit for Ferrari, and so far it has been on the first day of free practice. Carlos Sainz was the fastest rider stopping the clock in 1:42.587,but it is that Charles Leclerc followed behind him, completing the double for Maranello. Of course, not everything is happiness in Ferrari.
Leclerc has had many mechanical problems that appeared already in the first session, still during the day, and have been maintained during the night in Singapore. The Monegasque has lost a lot of filming time, and for this reason his best lap was already at the end of the session. Even so, he is second and three tenths behind Sainz.
Fernando Alonso, eighth, confirms the good feelings of Alpine
Of course the drama at Red Bull has been even greater. Max Verstappen has also lost a lot of filming time in FP2 due to mechanical failures, although in morning practice he dominated with overwhelming authority. Let us remember that Verstappen has here his first match point to be champion.
It hasn’t gone much better for Sergio Pérez, who also had some mistakes and also added driving errors that took him very close to the walls. The Mexican was the ninth fastest, while Verstappen put in his best lap on the soft tire already at the end and only climbed to fourth place.
The sensations for Mercedes are not bad, but they are still a long way from dreaming of victory. Lewis Hamilton was the fastest in the morning, but he was only fifth in the afternoon. ahead of him is George Russell, third just three tenths behind Carlos Sainz.
And the day has been full of trouble. Pierre Gasly caught fire in his Alpha Tauri in the pits, thankfully without major damage, and Lance Stroll hit the wall in early practice. The friction has been constant one of them that of Fernando Alonso, who was able to continue with his Alpine.
The sensations of Alpine are very good, Fernando Alonso has made the eighth fastest time, nine tenths behind Sainz, but Esteban Ocon is sixth. Valtteri Bottas’s Alfa Romeo slipped in between, but it looks like Alpine is in a good position to be first of the pack in Singapore.

Above all because McLaren is suffering. Lando Norris has made the eleventh fastest time, with Daniel Ricciardo sunk in the penultimate position. By the way, Alexander Albon is already back in his Williams, finishing sixteenth. We will see if the much announced rain appears at some point.
