The big news this week is that Kimi Raikkonen is moving to Sauber with a 2-year contract and Leclerc is taking his position in Ferrari for the next season. Although the move for Kimi was unexpected, it’s been rumored that he has bought part of the Sauber team; after all, it’s the team he started in F1 with and it’s base is right next to his home in Switzerland. It’s a smart move from Ferrari who want to have a back-up plan in case Leclerc does not perform on the level it is expected from him.
For the twisty Singapore GP, it should be a close fight between the top-3 teams. Similarly to Monaco, Red Bull may prove to be a strong opponent here. The model still believes that Hamilton is going to qualify first (61% chances over Vettel) and Sebastian will win the race (51.5% over Lewis). I think the smart bet would be on either Ricciardo or Raikkonen!
