Red Bull kicked off the Singapore weekend in the fashion that most people were expecting - with Max Verstappen setting the fastest lap in FP1. Lewis Hamilton was concentrating on other things, trialling the halo device early on and finishing up fourth fastest overall. Nico Rosberg was fifth fastest, but he also suffered a crash into the walls that broke the front wing on his Mercedes.

Jenson Button stopped out on track after just three minutes which caused a virtual safety car period due to a fuel system problem on the McLaren.
