F1 Singapore GP Live Stream: Race schedule, UK times and coverage
Kimi Raikkonen’s impending move back to Sauber at the end of the season − and Charles Leclerc’s move in the opposite direction − has dominated headlines this week, but the arrival of the Singapore GP means it’s time to get our eyes back on the track. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Singapore GP online for free, including the race schedule, UK times, and TV channel details.
Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton is still sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard just past the midway stage of the season, with Raikkonen’s current teammate Sebastian Vettel breathing down his neck. Between them, the Brit and the German have won 10 of the 13 races we’ve had so far this season, and they’re well ahead of the rest of the pack.

And so we move on to the Marina Bay Street Circuit, and the 14th race of the 2018 calendar, where Vettel has a lot to prove. Not only was Lewis Hamilton triumphant on this circuit last year, but Vettel also crashed out.
Here’s our guide on how to catch the 2018 Singapore GP from the UK, including channels and times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event.
You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no early morning starts this weekend.
