The F1 season which started in March is gradually coming to an end.
14 out of the 21 races have already taken place across different locations around the world. The 2018 season of the sport has been largely dominated by just two names: Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
Before Hamilton’s surprise win in Italy, both drivers were tied for race wins – five. Vettel’s win in front of his home crowd in Germany helped him to his fifth win. He started the season with two wins but has now been overtaken by the British driver, who now has six race wins and a 30-point lead over Vettel on the standings.
As we look ahead to the next race in Singapore, we take a look at a few burning questions that may impact the race outcome.
18 or 25 for Vettel?
It’s safe to say Hamilton is comfortable at the top of the table. His is a 30-point gap that will definitely increase before the end of the season with his fast car. He may as well be on his way to yet another drivers’ championship title.
With Vettel playing catch up, the German needs every point he can get in the final third of the season. Sebastian Vettel has to target at least a few race wins – which are worth 25 points – if he is to stand any chance. The 18 points – for second-place finishes – will not be enough, especially if Hamilton wins.
Do you think Vettel can take the full 25 points in Singapore?

Will history repeat itself?
F1 is a sport that is full of surprises – a crash could turn any race on its head.
So it’s all about finding a perfect balance between speed and keeping the car on the race track. This is what Vettel couldn’t do the last time he was on the race tracks in Singapore.
Vettel collided with Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen at the start of the race and Hamilton won the race.

A different race winner this season?
This season has only witnessed four different race winners – Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Riccardo and Max Verstappen. The remaining 16 drivers have only been adding to their points tally. Maybe this is why Fernando Alonso described F1 as becoming too predictable.
As usual, one of these four names are favorites to take the chequered flag on Sunday. But is there any chance that any of the 16 other drivers will step up to the plate and get a first win of the season? It’s tight but it’s not impossible, right?
