Once the sun has set in Singapore, everything comes alive. Formula 1’s annual night race spectacular really gets going during the second free practice session, which will be the first to be run after nightfall at Marina Bay.
After finishing fastest in FP1, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso will be hoping to double up in the second session, but he will do well to beat the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg as the times get quicker and more representative in FP2.

F1 comes to Singapore at a pivotal point in the battle for the 2014 world championship. Both Hamilton and Rosberg have tasted victory and defeat in the past few weeks, and although the facade of smiles and grins remains, they are embroiled in a bitter fight at the top. Both have good track records at Marina Bay, so the stage is set for a thrilling fight at the front.
However, the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari could yet get themselves in the mix. The circuit’s tight and twisty nature should suit both teams, and Sebastian Vettel will hold faint hopes of a fourth successive victory in Singapore. They will have grown slightly fainter after FP1 though, where his session was ended early by an engine problem.
FP2 will give the drivers a chance to work on their long run pace ahead of the race on Sunday, as well as the new radio restrictions that have come into force for this weekend’s race.
