  2. Wolff criticises Renault over Ocon U-turn

    Mercedes motorsport CEO Toto Wolff

    Renault have refused to comment on swingeing criticisms of their management from Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff.

    The Austrian said a team had gone back on their word to sign Mercedes-contracted Esteban Ocon, who looks like ending up without a seat next year. Wolff did not name Renault, but they are the team he was referring to.

    Wolff blamed "politics, hidden agendas and lies" for Ocon losing out on athe seat to Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo.

    He added, talking to Sky: "In July, (Ocon) had two offers on the table with contracts and it was just a case of choosing the right one and he ended up not having any any more because people just simply don't have the balls to stick to what they say.

    "But it is no problem, we have to sort it out with Esteban. He is a strong guy, he has been through difficult moments in his career and we will fix this one as well."

  5. Session 2: Raikkonen fastest as Vettel hits wall

    Ferrari's Kimi Raikonnen

    Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen led Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes by just 0.011 seconds in second practice at the Singapore Grand Prix. Hamilton's title rival Sebastian Vettel was ninth after hitting the wall and damaging his car's right-rear corner.

    Vettel was one corner from the end of a lap that looked set to put him up with Raikkonen and Hamilton. The German was able to get the car back to the pits but the extent of the damage ended his session.

  6. First session times

    Red Bull first and second, Ferrari third and fourth but Mercedes were down in sixth and eighth, but never used the softest compounds - the hypersofts.

  7. Session 1: Ricciardo fastest as Leclerc hits wall

    Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo

    Daniel Ricciardo led Max Verstappen to a Red Bull one-two in first practice at the Singapore Grand Prix. Title leader Lewis Hamilton was only sixth quickest, 1.521 seconds off the pace, and 1.235secs behind title rival Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari in third.

    Hamilton is 30 points ahead of Vettel and is expecting a difficult weekend on a track that does not suit Mercedes. The session ended with Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari replacement Charles Leclerc crashing his Sauber into a wall.

  10. Vettel's inner enemy

    "The biggest enemy is me."

    That's what Sebastian Vettel said on Thursday when asked about mistakes he has made this season as he and Lewis Hamilton both aim to win the world title for a fifth time.

    He did not have the best ending to yesterday's practice action as he clipped a wall, which hampered his running. Can he recover and get pole position today or will today be another masterclass in qualifying from Lewis Hamilton?
