The 2023 Singapore Grand Prix will be remembered not only for its thrilling finish but also as the race that marked the end of Red Bull’s winning streak. This race had its own winners and losers, adding to the drama that unfolded throughout the weekend.
Here are our standout performers:
Carlos Sainz’s victory in Singapore showcased his cleverness and tactical brilliance. His ability to analyze the situation on track and communicate his strategy to the Ferrari team was impressive. Sainz executed his plan flawlessly, demonstrating not only his speed but also his strategic prowess.
Lando Norris drove smartly and made the most of his opportunities to secure a podium finish. Despite a few minor incidents, Norris displayed skillful driving and capitalized on the DRS assistance from Carlos Sainz and McLaren’s straightline speed. It was a well-deserved podium for Norris in the second half of the season.
Gasly’s performance during the Singapore Grand Prix may have played second fiddle to his teammate Esteban Ocon, but he showcased his consistency and resilience. From 12th on the grid, Gasly fought his way into the points and finished as the best of the rest behind the leading teams. A solid result that redeemed the disappointments of the past.
Liam Lawson may not have delivered an extraordinary performance, but his ability to keep a cool head and adapt to the unpredictable race conditions is commendable. As an in-season injury stand-in, he fulfilled his role perfectly by taking advantage of the opportunities that arose and securing valuable points for the AlphaTauri team.
Despite encountering difficulties during the race, Kevin Magnussen’s perseverance paid off. Haas’s decision not to pit Nico Hulkenberg under the virtual safety car seemed detrimental at first, but Magnussen managed to secure a point-scoring finish. By demonstrating impressive pace and strategic tire management, Magnussen salvaged a positive result in a challenging season for the team.
George Russell missed an opportunity to secure a strong finish in Singapore. While his relentless pursuit to overtake was notable, he should have prioritized bringing home valuable points instead. Russell acknowledged his mistake post-race, stating that he felt he had let himself and the team down. However, this isolated incident should not overshadow his overall improvements and potential as a driver.
Despite their first defeat in 2023, Red Bull’s struggles were evident from the beginning of the race weekend. The team faced challenges finding the right balance with their car, limiting their performance potential. The fifth and eighth-place finishes did not reflect the true capabilities of the team. Red Bull will be eager to bounce back in the upcoming races and regain their form.
Although finishing in fourth place is generally considered a good result, Charles Leclerc and Ferrari saw this race as an opportunity to challenge for victory. Leclerc’s race was marred by a slow pitstop under the safety car, dropping him down the order. His tires also began to deteriorate, making it difficult to fend off Max Verstappen. A missed chance for both Leclerc and Ferrari.
Fernando Alonso’s performance in the Singapore Grand Prix was uncharacteristically poor. A penalty for crossing the pitlane entry line, being overtaken by former teammate Esteban Ocon, and struggling with an ill-handling car led to a disappointing race for Alonso. This result marked his first point-less finish of the season and dropped him out of the top three in the championship standings.
Esteban Ocon displayed remarkable skill during his birthday race, executing impressive overtakes and showcasing his wheel-to-wheel combat abilities. However, his race ended prematurely due to a failure, overshadowing an otherwise notable performance. While the DNF did not significantly impact his season, the thrilling overtakes he executed will be remembered.
Logan Sargeant’s race will be remembered for his crash, which brought out the safety car. Although he had a solid start, moving up the grid and keeping pace with his teammate Alex Albon, Sargeant’s race was unfortunate due to the incident. Consistency has been an issue for him throughout the season, and Williams will need to address this moving forward.
