Mercedes: Singapore to favour Ferrari/Red Bull

Mercedes: Singapore to favour Ferrari/Red Bull

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff believes this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix street circuit will favour Formula 1 rivals Ferrari and Red Bull.

Though it has excelled on low-downforce tracks this year, Mercedes has had to work on developments to improve its high-downforce performance, with Valtteri Bottas admitting recently he did not expect them to be ready for Singapore.

Ferrari trails Mercedes by 63 points in the constructors’ championship but has had the upper hand on low-speed tracks this season, with Sebastian Vettel winning in Monaco and Hungary.

Red Bull is also expected to go well in Singpaore, where its engine power deficiency is less significant, and took tactical grid penalties in Italy in preparation.

“So far this year, we have seen the pendulum swing according to circuit type,” said Wolff.

“On the surface, Singapore is the kind of circuit that should favour both Ferrari and Red Bull.

“Both have shown strong performance on low-speed circuits demanding maximum downforce, and we have found life more difficult at those places in 2017.”
