As the current points leader in Formula One, Max Verstappen enters this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix as the heavy favorite to win his 32nd career race. He has won the previous five races in a row and 11 of 16 in 2022.
If the current world champion has a lead of 138 points or more on Sunday night, he will win the championship at Marina Bay.
With 116 points remaining, Charles Leclerc has to finish seventh or higher if Max Verstappen does win. If the Dutchman wins by a score of 22 or more points over the Monaco, the match is done.
In addition to the Red Bull’s natural speed advantage (at least in Verstappen’s hands), the Singapore Grand Prix and its victorious drivers have a statistical quirk.
Champions of the World, Singapore
Before the COVID-19-mandated break, the World Championship staged 12 races, including the first Singapore Grand Prix in 2008.
A Formula One World Champion has won all of them.
With the field divided among four competitors, Verstappen may become the sixth driver to win at Marina Bay.
Sole outlier: Rosberg
With his 2019 victory, Sebastian Vettel became the most successful driver in the race’s history, surpassing Michael Schumacher’s four victories.
Even though Vettel is leaving F1 at the end of the season, Aston Martin is sure that their vehicle will be able to perform better on the strong downforce aspect of the track, which is a circuit that Vettel has always gone well at.
While he had a string of nine consecutive victories, the one he had in 2013 was by far the most decisive.
The 2008 win by Fernando Alonso was contentious since the Renault team notoriously instructed colleague Nelson Piquet Jr to crash in order to call for a Safety Car to help the short-fueled Spaniard.
Alonso was able to pass the leading pack of cars on the way to the pits, and the FIA ultimately ruled that he should be allowed to maintain the victory.
One of Hamilton’s most impressive qualifying runs in F1 history may have been the deciding factor in his winning the 2018 championship. His first Q3 lap was a 1:36.015 on a circuit that has traditionally been a poor fit for the Mercedes.
Despite Verstappen’s best efforts, Hamilton ultimately prevailed thanks to the scorching pace he established.
Only Nico Rosberg, who is not a World Champion, has ever won the race without being a World Champion.
The German won nine races overall in 2016, including one that gave him the title as he held off Daniel Ricciardo’s late push. Hamilton had a lackluster weekend, finishing third at best.
After 61 laps on Sunday, Verstappen is the clear favorite to visit the winner’s circle at the Singapore Grand Prix.
