Max Verstappen first and Sergio Perez then led to seven Red Bull’s streak of consecutive victories at the turn of the summer break. Milton’s team has so far won thirteen races out of seventeen, Ferrari has won the other four. Charles Leclerc climbed to the top step of the podium on three occasions, Carlos Sainz on one at Silverstone in early July. The Scuderia di Maranello has been without success for almost three months and in Singapore an important opportunity for the men led by Mattia Binotto has vanished.
Charles Leclerc had taken pole position, but was overtaken at the start by Sergio Perez. Carlos SainzPerky in free practice, he declared in the race that he had completely lost the feeling with his Ferrari while in front of him Perez and Leclerc managed to stretch with great agility, always inflicting important gaps on the McLaren driver both with intermediate and slick tires.
The calendar immediately presents an opportunity for redemption in Japan at Suzuka, even if, as Charles Leclerc pointed out, it will be difficult to stem Red Bull on a track similar to that of Spa. Carlos Sainz, in any case, emphasized the goal that animates Ferrari in this season finale: “We have to win a race before the end of the season – said the Spaniard – We have not won for a long time and a success would be the best way to project ourselves towards 2023. We also want to be able to put together a perfect weekend and if the victory arrives it will mean that we have succeeded ”.
Carlos Sainz like his colleagues expressed his happiness to be back in Japan after a long time: “It is a real shame that this country is so far from Europe – he added – it’s always great to come back here because the atmosphere is nothing short of magical, the fans are truly unique in the world here in Suzuka ”.
