That’s the situation facing Scott McLaughlin after he equalled Craig Lowndes’ record of race wins in a season.

McLaughlin took his 16th win of 2019 at the OTR SuperSprint on Sunday, and drew level with the record set by Lowndes 23 years ago.

“It’s so hot out there — it’s always a shock to the system when you get in the car here because it’s very bumpy, it’s a very long, long lap and it’s like a sauna in the car,” Hamilton said, a four-time Singapore victor. “But it’s been a solid day. We got through our run plan and continue improve the car.

Sebastian Vettel may be lagging behind young Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc this season, but Daniel Ricciardo believes the four-time world champion is close to bouncing back.

Vettel returns to the scene of one of his most successful playgrounds in Formula 1 this weekend in Singapore, where he has won four times.

However, the 32-year-old is currently in a winless slump stretching longer than 12 months, while Leclerc has won the last two races in Belgium and Italy.
