Singapore GP qualifying LIVE: Max Verstappen under threat as Lewis Hamilton attacks rivals

Carlos Sainz is fully expecting Red Bull to come good in Singapore this weekend despite Ferrari having led the Austrian team in practice.

“I don’t believe that for a moment,” said the Spaniard when asked if he feels that Red Bull are experiencing a mini-crisis.

“People should look at their long runs, they were the fastest. Yes, we have started well, yes, we are a little surprised ourselves.

“We know that a dominant car doesn’t mean you always dominate in Singapore, which we also saw with Mercedes when they were dominating, but to automatically conclude that we will be in pole position would be presumptuous.”
