Singapore Grand Prix 2019

By Harry Schofield:
Sebastian Vettel eventually claimed his first victory of the 2019 Formula 1 season in Singapore.
Charles Leclerc started on Pole position for the 3rd consecutive time and Lewis Hamilton was right behind him, so Sebastian attacked Lewis giving Charles a good second of free race track.
The team strategy for Ferrari should have favoured Charles but please read this with a very open mind…..
Sebastian Vettel was very low in the Ferrari camp and could potentially throw away a constructors and a drivers Championship because basically “He Can”
Formula 1 drivers are very different people from everyday people, win win and win at any cost and if that desire goes which it has clearly happened to Sebastian you have a very serious problem.
Ferrari will never admit it but my opinion is that the Singapore Grand Prix was manufactured to make Sebastian win.
Charles Leclerc would have won easily but the Italian outfit made sure Sebastian won.
This win will give Vettel the boost he needs to take the fight forward, fact or fiction nobody knows but I know how Formula 1 works and also the lengths teams will go to to make people win again.
