Last year, Mercedes’ Nico Roberg won the 2016 Singapore Grand Prix in his final year as an F1 driver. Roberg started on the pole and lead throughout before having to hold off a late challenge from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo to win the race by less than half a second.
After recording consecutive wins at the last two Grands Prix races in Belgium and Italy, current Drivers’ Championship leader, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, is looking like a great pick to win the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix.
Hamilton, who has actually won three of his last four races overall, said that “the learning from [the last two Grands Prix] should collectively put [Mercedes] in a better position for Singapore but I think still Ferrari are going to be quick there.”

The Briton added that he himself is going to Singapore “with a positive approach expecting to fight for the win”, but “if [he and Mercedes] can’t win, then [he and Mercedes] will take it at face value and damage limitation.”
Sebsatian Vettel will also have a legitimate shot despite losing his Drivers’ Championship lead at the Italian Grand Prix earlier this month. “There is a long way to go” Vettel said while and emphasizing that “[he and Ferrari] are developing [their] car and what’s coming makes me quite positive.”
Save your hard-earned betting bucks when it comes to Daniel Ricciardo as he’s gone winless in each of his last five races with one DNF. Max Verstappen is another racer you don’t have to worry about pulling off the upset, seeing as how he’s gone 0-13 this year with a whopping six DNFs.
One driver that is offering great underdog value is Valtteri Bottas after he finished second in Italy and second in Great Britian on July 16 – after winning in Austria on July 9.
Singapore Grand Prix Prediction
Lewis Hamilton is looking like a near, sure-fire pick to win in Singapore Grand Prix, but he’s not if you ask me, mostly because of what Lewis said about Mercedes cars not handling tight, congested circuits as well as Ferrari’s.
With that said – and Sebastian Vettel looking to pick up a win in the worst way, I say the German is the best driver to back heading into Singapore. I’m going Vettel for the win, Lewis for second place and Bottas for third place.
