Singapore is on the F1 calendar as the 16th round of the 2023 season. The day has transitioned into qualifying in preparation for the eagerly anticipated final race after the Free Practice Sessions were successfully completed. But the Q1’s closing minutes were dramatic as Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll was involved in a serious collision.

At the Marina Bay Circuit, the event occurred as all 20 cars were operating at full throttle. Lance Stroll experienced a significant collision in the last bend right as the Q1 was about to come to an end, bringing out the red flags. Stroll ran over the kerbs at the penultimate turn while attempting to finish with a spot in Q2, which caused his AMR23 to skid back onto the track. Stroll evaded serious harm as he exited the vehicle as the medical crew raced in, even though the automobile sustained significant damage during this process.
The Canadian driver left the qualifying round at that point, joining Valtteri Bottas, Oscar Piastri, Logan Sargeant, and Zhou Guanyu. The team will be dependent on Fernando Alonso, who is in third place in the Driver Standings with 170 points and will start Stroll at position 20 as a result.
2023 F1 Singapore GP qualifying results: Carlos Sainz wins the pole position.
Carlos Sainz of Ferrari won the pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix as Max Verstappen, the undisputed leader of the Formula 1 championship, and his Red Bull team struggled miserably. Even though the qualifier was disrupted by Lance Stroll’s significant Q1 crash, Carlos Sainz managed to secure the pole position.
After the one-hour qualifying session on Friday, which was divided into three parts with five cars eliminated in each, Sainz will start in front of George Russell (Mercedes) and Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc in the race on Sunday.
A miserable day for Max Verstappen
Verstappen is under investigation for reportedly obstructing three different drivers: Yuki Tsunoda of AlphaTauri in Q2 and Logan Sargeant’s Williams in Q1 for one. The first probe stems from Verstappen’s brief stop at the pitlane exit during Q1.
However, given that he was eliminated in Q2 on merit by Tsunoda’s replacement teammate Liam Lawson after battling a suddenly rowdy RB19 all weekend, any penalties for any or both of those occurrences are unlikely to make his Saturday any worse.
