F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2018 - Telecast details, Time, Weather forecast and Track info
The Formula One calendar is back on track this weekend with the Singapore Grand Prix. The race will be held at the well-known Marina Bay circuit in the heart of Singapore and will prove to be a challenging task for all the drivers involved this year.
The race last year was action-packed to say the very least, with Lewis Hamilton emerging unscathed from a first lap melee involving Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen. The Brit went on to dominate the race and picked up a massive victory en route to another World Championship. This time around too, Hamilton will have his eyes set on the top prize.
Hamilton took a stunning pole ahead of Red Bull's Max Verstappen while Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel managed to take the third grid place for Sunday's race.
