What happens when you have 2 tigers on the same hill?

Singapore GP coming this weekend, weather forecast shows that probably it will be a very wet weekend.  :Dancing_banana:

Any WMF member will be attending?

Qualifying in on Saturday - 21 September 2013 and Raceday is on Sunday - 22 September 2013.

The Singapore circuit is named a street circuit, similar to Monaco. Outright horsepower is not a real advantage unlike purposely built F1 circuit like the Sepang F1 circuit which has 2 long straights.

If it rains, the race becomes totally unpredictable.

Last year's top 3 were:

1. Vettel
2. Button
3. Alonso

Cartoonishly funny, but educative at the same time.

Surprise how fast the tyre heat up.

Tires are already heated to about 80c even before they start.

At the point of brake lock-up just before the collision, you can see the tires "light up", due to the intense friction/heat built-up.

By the way, the Singapore F1 Race is held after the sun set.

It is the only F1 race in the night, so the cars have to fitted with headlights. :Laughing_on_floor:

Kimi, respect!
13th to 3rd with a sore back.

How the hell is it that Webber's car always breaks and Vettel gets the win?

Webba should just crash into the kid in the last few races.

BTW look at the details we dont see often!

Kimi is a fighter. Webber is unfairly treated by his team. Ptui!

No worries. You are doing a great job.

Looks like if you place Vettel as No. 1, you can't go wrong. Too predictable. Hopefully next year will be more interesting than watching grass grow.
