    Thanks for joining us and for your comments. Until tomorrow...

    Second session
  2. Hamilton & Verstappen dominate practice - read the report

    Andrew Benson

    BBC Sport’s chief F1 writer in Singapore

    Lewis Hamilton

    Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen were in a league of their own in second practice at the Singapore Grand Prix.

    Hamilton set the pace, 0.111 seconds ahead of Verstappen, and with two laps quicker than anyone else. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was third, 0.818secs off.

    Valtteri Bottas in fourth was 1.121secs off team-mate Hamilton. And Red Bull's Alexander Albon was fifth, 0.986secs slower than Verstappen, with Ferrari's Charles Leclerc in sixth.

    The Ferrari drivers both had compromised runs when they were simulating qualifying on the 'soft' tyres, but the Italian cars look a long way off the form they showed when Leclerc won the last two races in Belgium and Italy.

    The Ferrari's lack of grip in the corners is proving a major handicap around the twists and turns of the Marina Bay circuit.

  3. Post update

    Sergio Perez has a trip to the stewards after glancing Kevin Magnussen into the wall.

    Simon Partridge: Would @RGrosjean be the greatest F1 driver in history if it wasn’t for everyone else (all the radio messages we hear are him complaining/blaming other people)?

    Dave Rossiter: Grosjean is the current Maldornado. Surprised he's been kept.

  6. Post update

    "Are you OK, are you OK?" Romain Grosjean is asked after that spin.

    "Avoid talking into corners," he tells his engineer in a great attempt to deflect the attention from his own mistake.

  7. Post update

    Romain Grosjean nearly just went into the wall and has just had a spin and slide.

  8. Post update

    Sergio Perez comes in for a late go on the softs. Meanwhile Romain Grosjean scuffs the wall, but gets away with it.

  9. Post update

    Maybe not. Valtteri Bottas may be having a late sprint after getting some encouragement from his team.

  13. Singapore or Monaco?

    Rachel T has tweeted us on #bbcf1 saying...: Singapore is a MUCH better street circuit than Monaco. Discuss!

    Jolyon, speaking on 5 Live Sports Extra, replies: "No, wrong. Monaco is bonkers, it has the bonkers factor and you're more likely to hit the barriers. Some of my favourite corners are in Monaco. Singapore at night, the cars look superb and as a race track it is better. They are different, I enjoy them both but I don't think Singapore is much better than Monaco. The challenge in Monaco is more than Singapore. Monaco is still special."

    Who deserves to keep their seat / who should be replaced?

    nxx: "What's he doing there, just sleeping," Vettel really ought to remember his recent escapades, before criticising others. His move in Monza was one of the most dangerous manoeuvres I have seen in years

    Percy Sleigh: We need Fernando in the Ferrari team. And Sebastian can go back to where he belongs - Red Bull.

  15. Post update

    A coming together between Sergio Perez and Kevin Magnussen, who is clipped into the wall.

    "What the hell, damage guys," says Magnussen over team radio.

    "He tried to **** my lap up," says Perez, who has a slightly different view of the incident.

  16. Post update

    It's horrible for Haas at the moment. Romain Grosjean, fresh from signing a new one-year contract, is only 17th, with team-mate Kevin Magnussen 19th. George Russell of Williams is in the middle of those two, with Robert Kubica the slowest man out there by a seven-tenths margin.
