F1 Singapore Fuel-Adjusted Grid Positions: Who is Heavy, Light, or Going to Crash?


What Happens When Red Flags in Qualifying Help Early Fuel Consumption

2:45pm EST —After the FIA-released car weights and a bit of math, the projected first-stint stops for Sunday’s Singapore GP are available.  Lewis Hamilton will likely be stopping later than those behind him, and coupled with his available use of KERS, should be in a good position for the race.  Adrian Sutil is actually in a position to attempt a one-stop strategy, possibly the only one in the field.  With Singapore as tight a circuit as Monaco (and considerably more dusty on-track), it would not be unwise to conclude that multiple yellows and a safety car will completely muck about with stopping strategy for all the teams.
