F1 2022 results: Singapore Grand Prix – Qualifying – msnNOW

A first Singapore Grand Prix qualifying session for three years began with the Marina Bay circuit still drying out after heavy rain that had shortened FP3.
Only 30 minutes of running had been possible three hours earlier and the cars headed out on intermediate tyres at the start of qualifying for a race absent from the calendar since 2019 because of the pandemic.
That meant a driver’s timing to start his final push would be critical in the quest to make it through each part of the session under the floodlights.
Kevin Magnussen, Charles Leclerc and Alex Albon all had to spin their car around to get back on track after minor excursions off the circuit without any damage in Q1, as teams and drivers considered when the point would be to switch to slick tyres.

Nobody decided it was quite ready, however, and as yellow flags flew for an incident involving Fernando Alonso as the chequered flag fell, there were a couple of surprising early casualties.
Daniel Ricciardo’s only Singapore GP for McLaren resulted in a Q1 exit and he was joined by Alonso’s team-mate at Alpine, Esteban Ocon.
The others eliminated were Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas and Williams duo Alex Albon and Nicholas Latifi.
