F1 2023 Singapore GP – Qualifying Results

Carlos Sainz of Ferrari took pole position at the 2023 Singapore GP with both Red Bull cars eliminated in Q2


Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz ended a sensational Qualifying session for the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix on pole position, leading a MercedesGeorge Russell by just 0.072s. 

The second Ferrari of Charles Leclerc was pipped by Russell at the death of Q1 and thus he starts third. Lando Norris was fourth in his McLaren which had a raft of updates, then came the second Mercedes car of Lewis Hamilton

Lance Stroll brought out the red flag towards the end of Q1 after a massive impact when coming off the final corner onto the pit straight as his Aston Martin car slammed into the wall.

Unbelievably, both Red Bull cars were knocked out in Q2. Liam Lawson in the AlphaTauri put in a sensational flying lap to send Max Verstappen down to 11th, while Sergio Perez spun at Turn 3 on this final flying lap. 

An incensed Verstappen stormed out of the pit lane and was scathing of his car’s performance on team radio as did Perez
