Date & Time: When is the Singapore GP?
Following the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, the Formula One squad now leaves Europe for 2022 – and heads to Asia.
The Singapore Grand Prix will take place at the Marina Bay Street Circuit on Sunday 2 October. The start time is 14:00.
On Friday (12:00 & 15:00) the first two free practice sessions will take place. One day later, the third practice session will follow from 12:00 hrs and qualifying from 15:00 hrs.
TV & Livestream: Who is showing the Singapore Grand Prix live?
In Germany, the Singapore Formula 1 GP will be broadcast live and exclusively on TV on Sky.
On Sky Sport F1, the Singapore GP broadcast will run live on all three days – the three practice sessions, qualifying and of course the race on Sunday.
As usual, there will be detailed pre-event reports, analysis and interviews as well as all the press conferences of those involved during the Sky Live broadcast.
On the streaming platform WOW – and Sky Go (for all existing Sky customers) there is also the option of watching the GP broadcast from the Marina Bay Street Circuit in a livestream.
The Singapore Grand Prix circuit
The Singapore Formula 1 GP will be held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. As the name suggests, the temporary circuit is a street circuit.
The track was used for the first time in Formula 1 in 2008: The premiere was won by Fernando Alonso in a Renault. It is curious that all the former winners are still here, except for Nico Rosberg.
The Singapore GP is a technically demanding track that is much faster than the famous street circuit in Monaco.
Singapore track: length & curves
The Grand Prix circuit nevertheless offers many more highlights than just the start under floodlights. Examples include passing the “Singapore Flyer” Ferris wheel. The “Singapore Sling”, a triple curve combination, was defused in 2013 by a single left-hand curve after various accidents.
The race track has a length of 5.063 kilometres and 23 bends. In the race, 61 laps are run in Singapore.
The record Singapore winner is also the winner of the last race of 2019: Sebastian Vettel. The German has triumphed a total of five times so far. He is followed by Lewis Hamilton with four wins.
Who is favourite for the 2022 Formula 1 Singapore GP?
Given the last few races, there can only be one favourite for the Singapore Grand Prix: Max Verstappen.
The reigning world champion is currently driving in a league of his own. With the victory in Monza, he won the fifth race in a row. It was his 11th GP success in total this season.
What’s more, the Red Bull has so far been superior on virtually all types of track – high-speed or twisty. That this will change now of all times – unlikely.
Who could stop Max Verstappen from winning for the sixth time in a row?
According to the Formula 1 betting odds of the bookmakers, Ferrari star Charles Leclerc is seen as Verstappen’s biggest opponent in the Asian round. The gap in the betting odds, however, is huge, as it has been on the track recently.
After all, things have been anything but good at Ferrari lately. Nevertheless, the Reds remain the second-fastest car in the field, which enjoyed a good showing in Singapore thanks to Vettel.
The competition from Mercedes and Co. has not really been at the front of the pack lately. Slowly but surely, the focus should already be on 2023…
