Friday (14) that opened the schedule of the weekend of the GP of Singapore had in Kimi Räikkönen its main name. The 'Ice Man', who is starting Ferrari at the end of the season, led the second session and recorded the fastest lap in history on the road circuit: 1min38s699. But according to the veteran, the weather could have been even better.

"In the first practice we checked the changes made and it seems that everything worked well. Of course, in the second practice, I could have led a little better. I went through the zebras on my fastest lap, so we lost a bit of time, but overall it was pretty quiet, "Kimi said shortly after tonight's session.

The driver, who is in good shape after the race two weeks ago in Monza, followed the speech made by teammate Sebastian Vettel and expects a fairly even battle between the teams following the work in the city-state.

Räikkönen's fastest lap was only 0s011 faster than Lewis Hamilton, runner-up, while Red Bull doubled up Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen in the morning practice session. At night, the best taurine car was the young Dutchman, who was 0-5 behind the Kimi mark.

"I think it's going to be pretty tight. We just have to put things in order and fix some things, but I think the tires worked as expected and they seem to be okay, so let's see, "said the owner of the car # 7, who highlighted the high wear of the tires faster of the weekend. "The hypermaces do not last as long as the other tires, but that's something we already knew," he said.
