These are the conditions for Verstappen to be able to seal the F1 title in Singapore

This weekend at the Singapore GP is Max Verstappen's first chance to seal his second F1 title

Verstappen is now already leading 116 points from his closest rival Charles Leclerc (Ferrari). With six races remaining, the Red Bull champion can seal the 2022 F1 world title in Singapore.

However, the conditions are very heavy. Namely, must win the race at the Singapore GP. While Leclerc must finish in 8th or 9th position, depending on who will get one additional point from the fastest lap .

However, winning in Singapore is something that Verstapppen has never achieved. Because in the last seven editions, the highest podium was controlled by Mercedes and Ferrari.

While the record for the most wins is still held by Sebastian Vettel (5 times).

Verstappen does have more motivation to face this weekend's race. Because if that happens, the Dutch racer will win his fifth successive year this year.

"I want to go to Singapore and win races there too," said Verstappen. "We had a great season, so we have to try it (win the Singapore GP) and enjoy the race," he said.

The first step that must be taken by Red Bull is to ensure that Verstappen can perform well in the qualifying session.

Due to the relatively narrow character of the street circuit, it makes it more difficult for racers to overtake .

This fact is also supported by statistical data. Namely seven champions of 11 editions of the race in Singapore won it via pole position .

''Marina Bay is a typical circuit. Need to harmonize a lot of things to be able to win here,''said the son of former F1 driver Josh Verstappen is.
