The 2017 F1 Singapore GP is expected to be highly challenging, according to Carlos Sainz. The Spaniard lists high heat and humidity as the primary difficulties. These motorists will probably encounter this while navigating the street circuit.
With barriers enclosing the tight circuit that winds through the center of the city. Singapore’s track is renowned as one of the most taxing. Due to the intense heat and humidity in the nation, it is perhaps the most physically taxing circuit on the calendar. According to Carlos Sainz, he would practice in extreme heat for a week to assist him. It is to remain on top of the dangerous conditions in the island nation.
Sainz told Mundo Deportivo that “It will be physically challenging due to the heat and humidity. This has always been the case. I’m going to use this week to practice in hot temps and acclimate myself since it’s the hardest race in the World Championship. I believe it’s a track that can benefit the vehicle. Also, ot offer us a decent chance to pursue a victory that would be fantastic before the season’s finish.”
The Ferrari F1-75 driven by the Spaniard is perhaps a good fit for Singapore’s narrow and winding circuit. It would be premature to write off the Dutchman, though, with Red Bull and Max Verstappen riding a wave of confidence.
Charles Leclerc is not Ferrari’s top priority above Carlos Sainz, according to the team manager
If his team had a “designated number one and number two driver”. Binotto was questioned during a press conference at the 2022 F1 Italian Grand Prix. He said: “I don’t have any such team orders.
Mattia Binotto, the team manager for Ferrari, asserts that the Scuderia is providing Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz “same chances” and is not favouring one driver over the other.
“I believe that as a team, it is fair to offer them an equal chance, at least at the beginning and throughout the season. If it becomes necessary, we may indicate who has the best chance of winning.
In a seemingly contradictory remark, the team’s chairman John Elkann asserted that Charles Leclerc will lead the Scuderia to victory in the drivers’ and constructors’ championships before 2016.
Currently, Charles Leclerc leads Carlos Sainz by 32 points in the drivers’ standings. Leclerc finished in second place at the Monza F1 Italian Grand Prix in 2022. But with six rounds left, the Spaniard will put up all of his might to defeat his partner for the second consecutive year.
