This weekend sees the return to Singapore and there is unfinished business for the Ferrari's. After last years start line incident that took both the red rockets and Max Verstappen out before the first corner, this took Vettel out of the championship race. Will this be the death knell for Ferrari and their World Drivers aspirations for 2018, we will have to wait and see.
Mercedes seemed to overcome their problems leading into Monza but this circuit will highlight any low speed drive problems in anyone's chassis.
It was a pleasant turn of fortunes for Williams at Monza but this will test the divers skill and the car. I don't see them anywhere near the front.
Red Bull have had their fair share of problems with most of the misfortune happening to the Ricciardo side of the garage. Max should be happy as he was the one suffering most previously.
Haas should turn up with their new floors following Grosjean's exclusion from his fine 6th place finish. This will be interesting seeing what impact this has on the handling of their cars.
The new incarnation of Force India is really racking up the points and the momentum this team is showing is impressive. It's a shame that one of the drivers will be shown the door at season's end to make space for Lance Stroll.
Renault, in the hands of Sainz, at the last event were impressive. Again, this circuit is a different ball game.
This will also apply to Toro Rosso, Sauber and McLaren.

Sebastian Vettel clipped the fence which brought an end to his running after 12 laps.
Will this set him back as this session is held about the time as qualifying on Saturday?
