Why Leclerc could be only three laps short of a Baku F1 upset
Circuits with high top speeds have generally been Red Bull's speciality so far this season but in the opening pair of practice sessions, Ferrari closed out Friday's running on top with a good straightline speed advantage. But with Red Bull rival Max Verstappen out of sync in his practice runs, Ferrari and Charles Leclerc may not have seen his best
A street circuit defined by its high speeds and a huge flat-out sprint that comes to dominate the second half of the lap. That’s surely Red Bull territory in 2022, based on the Formula 1 race-winning form the team displayed in Jeddah and then Miami.

That partly explains a number of low scores, including from a handful of high profile runners, allowing others to take a starring role under the floodlights
In a marathon Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, Sergio Perez’s victory was only assured hours after the race due to a stewards investigation. Throughout the contest the Red Bull driver impressively held off Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in changing conditions to see the Mexican pull out enough of an advantage to negate his post-race penalty
What happens, asks MATT KEW, if the old adage of win on a Sunday, sell on a Monday is no longer true for F1 manufacturers?
The Australian rising star is fast, consistent, confident, adaptable and has shown excellent racecraft, but there’s already a taint to his reputation. That hasn’t stopped him becoming the hottest property in this year’s F1 driver market and why McLaren moved fast to snap up the 21-year-old
Formula 1's incoming engine rules shake-up has multiple targets. But it may also solve what has been a bone of contention since the hybrids arrived in 2014. The new plan will allow the series to pump up the volume
