The European swing is over for the season now as the F1 circus touches down in Singapore this week. The Marina Bay Street Circuit has become a staple on the season’s calendar after becoming the first night-time race in F1 history back in 2008.

In contrast, it’s been a track Verstappen has struggled to get much joy on in his career. He’s finished on the podium just twice and could only manage seventh last year despite having won the previous five races leading up to the Grand Prix.
There’s some hope from Mercedes this week that they could be closer to challenging the Red Bulls this week to end their perfect record. Verstappen is on an unprecedented streak of winning 10 Grands Prix in a row.
