Your 2019 #SingaporeGP Predictions: The Results

Before the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix weekend began, I posted five prediction polls on the Lights Out twitter account. How many of the questions did you get right? Find out below!


1. WHICH TEAM WILL WIN?

YOUR PREDICTION: MERCEDES

CORRECT ANSWER: FERRARI

Was that the most unexpected victory of the season so far? Only 13% of you believed that Ferrari would win the Singapore Grand Prix, but they did – and they scored a 1-2 finish! While Charles Leclerc provided the pace on Saturday, a masterful strategy and a great drive secured Sebastian Vettel his first win in over a year. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen completed the podium, while the Mercedes drivers finished fourth and fifth. 


2. WILL THERE BE A SAFETY CAR?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: YES

The Singapore Grand Prix continued its tradition of featuring a Safety Car period in every race. The 2019 event featured no less than three Safety Car outings!


3. WHERE WILL ALBON FINISH?

YOUR PREDICTION: 4TH OR 5TH

CORRECT ANSWER: 6TH TO 10TH

It always looked set to be a difficult weekend for Alex Albon, who had no previous experience of the Marina Bay Circuit. And while he did struggle and suffered a crash in Friday Practice, he improved over the weekend and did, arguably, the best he could have done in the circumstances. He qualified sixth and finished where he started. 





4. WHERE WILL THE BEST PLACED MCLAREN QUALIFY?

YOUR PREDICTION: 6TH OR 7TH

CORRECT ANSWER: 6TH OR 7TH

Lando Norris set a blistering lap in Q2, but a mistake in Q3 meant that it was up to Carlos Sainz to get the most out of the McLaren. Sainz qualified in seventh place. It marked their best qualifying position at the circuit since both cars qualified in the top four in 2012. 


5. WILL THERE BE MORE 2020 DRIVER ANNOUNCEMENTS?

YOUR PREDICTION: NO

CORRECT ANSWER: NO

There were a few bits of driver news ahead of the race weekend, with Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen confirmed at Haas for 2020 and Robert Kubica announcing he was leaving Williams at the end of the year But that was it for the driver announcements in Singpaore!
