Don't miss the Singapore GP!

What 0.007/sec looks like (via SkySportsF1)

Singapore qualifying was the closest so far this season, not just for the 7/1000th of a second between Hamilton and Rosberg but the top 5 are all in the same 2.5/10th, the top 9 in the same 6/10th.

Has the competition caught up to Mercedes?    It's more likely the very specific characteristics of the Singapore circuit played a role.    If you accept Mercedes' big engine advantage is due to their superior MGU-H (turbo) component then it might be that all those short segments make it less of a factor.

In any case, today's  exciting qualifying hint at a very interesting race tomorrow.   The only shame that Kimi Raikkonen did not get a chance to show his speed in Q3 because of yet another problem on his Ferrari.
