Sergio Perez recorded Red Bull’s first Singapore Grand Prix victory since 2013 in the rain-hit 2022 race. Red Bull have scored more points in Singapore than any other team and have scored on every visit to the track. They’ve also had more podium finishes here than anyone else, with 14 in total.
With Max Verstappen fifth and Perez eighth in 2023, it was the first Singapore Grand Prix since 2010 in which neither Red Bull driver finished on the podium. Red Bull enjoyed three consecutive wins at the Singapore Grand Prix in 2011, 2012 and 2013. One of their drivers finished as runner-up here for five consecutive seasons between 2014 and 2018, while Max Verstappen finished third in 2019.

The Brackley-based team suffered their worst Singapore Grand Prix result since 2008 in 2022, with Lewis Hamilton finishing ninth and George Russell last of the cars still running at the end of the race. Hamilton returned the team to the podium in 2023, finishing third after Russell crashed out on the final lap.
The team have recorded five DNFs in total here, two as a result of Michael Schumacher crashing out of proceedings in 2011 and 2012, two as a result of electrical failures for Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in 2014 and 2015 respectively. A Mercedes driver has never finished as runner-up in the Singapore Grand Prix.
Mercedes have taken pole at three Singapore Grands Prix – in 2014, 2016 and 2018. The team held a 100% appearance rate in the final part of qualifying here until 2022, when George Russell missed out on Q3 by qualifying 11th.
2014 is the only season in which Mercedes have locked-out the front row in Singapore, but Rosberg’s car issues saw him starting from the pit-lane that year.

Ferrari were the first team to take pole position at the Marina Bay Circuit, and have enjoyed starting from the front a further six times since then – including in each of the last three races at the track.

In addition to Kimi Raikkonen’s Q2 exit and Giancarlo Fisichella’s Q1 exit that year, the team suffered a further Q2 elimination with Felipe Massa in 2012, while he and Vettel were both out in Q1 in 2012 and 2016 respectively with gearbox problems.
