Raikkonen: Red Bull Friday pace was misleading

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo of Australia steers his car into the pit lane during the second practice session at the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix on the Marina Bay City Circuit Singapore Friday Sept. 15 Formula One: Vettel on pole in Singapore, Hamilton fifth

It;s an awesome track when you feel the auto was coming together.

Red Bull Racing, likewise, looked strong during the long-run simulations, placing the race firmly within the team's grasp if it has the pace to overcome Mercedes's qualifying engine mode this evening (Sept 16) in the fight for pole position.

"Definitely, the gaps are too big for us", said Bottas. I think tomorrow I'm just going to be playing the long game. "It will be a very close race".

"The auto should be better tomorrow but it will be a very close race".

Had he been on pole, the 19-year-old would have been the youngest driver in the history of the sport to start from the top slot.

"It all seemed to change for qualifying, but we have seen that in other weekends".

"When you watch this documentary and you see meat clogging up your arteries, you see all the stuff they put in the meat, stuff we are all eating, there is no way I am going to disregard that".

Ferrari's Vettel claimed his fourth pole under the floodlights in Singapore with a sensational lap of 1:39.491 - six tenths of a second faster than his title rival Hamilton who will start in fifth place alongside his team-mate Valtteri Bottas. "I squeezed every single bit out of it".

'At least four dead' after M5 crash
Interstates England said the "early desire" is that the M5 "will stay shut in the two bearings late into tonight". South Western Ambulance Service Trust said a dozen ambulances and a critical care team were working at the scene.

Valtteri Bottas has conceded Mercedes are "really struggling" in Singapore and have a mountain to climb if they are to get on at least one vehicle in a podium spot. "Seb turned it on in qualifying but I am looking forward to tomorrow", Ricciardo noted.

Hamilton will have his teammate's company on the third row after Valtteri Bottas qualified sixth, nearly seven tenths slower than the Briton.

"We knew coming here it would be hard", Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.

"Since yesterday, we - well at least myself - was nowhere near to the Red Bull; today, without some mistakes, we could have [both] been ahead of them". I will accept a little bit of defeat but I'm still confident we will get victory. Still, he remained hopeful. But this is a frightful track for overtaking; it will be a long race. Start opportunities, strategy opportunities, safety cars, who knows. Carlos Sainz was 10th in the Toro Rosso.

Daniil Kvyat did improve on his second run, but only by enough to take 13th ahead of the second Force India of Esteban Ocon.

As for Q1, Kevin Magnussen found himself on the wrong side of the cut-off again in 16th in the other Haas, 0.129secs down on the sister auto.

Brazilian driver Felipe Massa bumped into the barriers in Q1, while his Williams teammate Lance Stroll struggled to control his auto and Pascal Wehrlein took a chunk out of a wall with his Sauber.
