Singapore 2008 - The race // Felipe Massa lines up on pole position with Lewis Hamilton beside him

Published by Christine

We saw plenty of incidents during qualifying yesterday, but it didn't leave us with a messed up grid like Italy. However, there are still plenty of things to keep an eye on - the first corner being the most important. Will Massa keep ahead of Hamilton? Will Hamilton go all out to get past his arch rival? Will Räikkönen play a part in any of this? Which of the mid-field runners will tangle together?

So many questions, and just a short hour to go before we find out. It looks as though all the rain predictions will not come to fruition, which I am personally grateful for. The marshals seemed to struggle with simple accidents, and rescue missions, so I dread to think what would happen if there was an extra variable of rain as well.

If Kubica and Räikkönen don't finish well this race, then their championship chances will be all but over. BMW never said winning a title was part of their goal for this year, the single win is enough. Kubica, however, wants to keep on pushing, get to the top, if he can. I'm not hopeful, but this race will really prove one way or the other.

Another driver to watch out for is Vettel. It will go one of two ways: either he will be able to keep the pace up and make a nuisance of himself in the championship battle, or we will see him falling through the pack and mixing it up with everyone else. Either way, he's one to watch.

Talking of watching, here are few links that might be useful:
